Click here to view the program for The Big Mix – Juneteenth

This summer, discover a new kind of entertainment: a performance that’s part party, part performance art, part vaudeville, part variety show, and a whole new way to look at three of our most joyous, most provocative, most historically challenging and most uniquely American holidays.  

Conceived and directed by Little Island Artist-in-Residence Tina Landau, each week of The Big Mix will feature our triple-threat ensemble including Marla LouissaintZach McNallyIanne Fields Stewart, and Allan K. Washington, plus our house band led by Musical Director Kimberly Grigsby. The Big MixJuneteenth will be hosted by Tony and Grammy Award nominee Joshua Henry with performances from Tony Award winner Tonya Pinkins, Mykal Kilgore, singer-songwriter Chanese Elifé, and special acts including parkour artists Reap Genius & Falco, fire artist Sage Sovereign, dance performances from Step It Up/HANAC Secret Society Dance Company, choral performances from Vy Higginsen’s Sing Harlem Choir, and marching band performances by The Empire Marching Elite. Plus, newly commissioned work from Brinae Ali & Tamar-kali and new music by Jacinth Greywoode.

You will come to be thrilled and amazed, and you will leave moved and inspired. There is a boundless mosaic of great artists, creators and performers in our land, and what better way for them to display their gifts than to show us how, through these holidays, we strive to become a better people and a more perfect union.
