Where HAVE all the cowboys gone? "Inappropriate" is coming to town.

What? Duane Park moved?  It's where the old Bowery Poetry Club used to be?  Downtown?  Amongst the people?

Hey errrybody...

I'm so pleased to announce that I'm coming back to Duane Park.  I just love the people there.  If you haven't heard, Duane Park has moved across town to the Bowery (308 Bowery between Bleecker and Houston Streets to be exact).   The new space is beyond luxurious.  At some point, we'll discuss the staircase that unfolds onto the stage.  If you've never caught my show at the former Duane Park, now is the time!!  Tuesday night, 4/30 at 8PM.  As usual, there is no admission charge.  If you'd like to reserve a table and grab some food (which is superb, btw), just give them a call at (212) 732-5555 or you can email your reservation to duanepark@earthlink.net.

Elliot Roth is back on the keys, Shaleah Adkisson and Amber Iman are singing backup, Andrew Volkoff is directing.  And I'm whipping up stories about where my sex life has mysteriously vanished to.

I can't wait to see you there!!!!

Here's the official press release for the show....

James Jackson, Jr. – “Inappropriate

Tuesday 4/30 8PM

308 Bowery (btw Bleecker & Houston St)

            How do you measure what’s inappropriate?
If an ounce of prevention has that much power, do you truly change your behavior to fit someone else’s occasion?  Come inside and find out.

Performance artist James Jackson, Jr. is back at the newly relocated, and STUNNING Duane Park at 308 Bowery between Bleecker & Houston Streets (home of the former Bowery Poetry Club) to ask these questions and more in a new night of laughter and song.

With a band lead by sexy piano man extraordinaire Elliot Roth and backed by Shaleah Adkisson (Rent – Off B’way, Hair – Nat’l Tour) and Amber Iman (Rent – Off B’way), director, and dear friend since directing James in the regional premiere of LaChiusa’s The Wild Party in Boston, Andrew Volkoff (Genesius Theatre Group, Barrington Stage Co., Hangar Theatre Lab Co., Drama League Directing Fellow) cooks James’ unrivaled sass, wit, laughter, and tears into a brew that’s bound to bring Duane Park to it’s knees once again.

Admission is FREE!!!
RSVP for a table at (212) 732-5555 or via email at duanepark@earthlink.net.  Bar seating is also available.  Tuesday, 4/30 @ 8PM
James Jackson, Jr. was undergraduately reared by lesbians in the New England Berkshires after artistically growing up in Boston under the soul-food tutelage of a deep southern family.  The shoes; Birkenstocks.  The music; Indigo, Simone, Franklin & Difranconian.  The food; fattening.  The relationships; many, lost, and strong.

After being depostited in New York City over a decade ago, the real work began.  Dance belts, regional stage yelts, demanding Brits, and a rather unfortunate stop in Branson, Missouri lead to his discovery of artistic truth on prestigious stages like Radio City Music Hall as well as Carnegie Hall.  His highly emotional, devastatingly funny cabaret act has been seen at Joe’s Pub, 54 Below, Duane Park, DROM, The A.R.T.’s Club Oberon, and Los Angeles’ Lyric Theatre.  James’ razor-sharp wit, unique sense of humor, talent, and on & off stage persona have become an artistic force to be reckoned with as well as a voice people want to hear as he changes the face of the concert stage.
