‘Jelly’s Last Jam’ Review: A Musical Paradise, Even in Purgatory

Did Jelly Roll Morton “invent” jazz, as he claimed? A sensational Encores! revival offers a postmortem prosecution of one of the form’s founding fathers.

https://www.nytimes.com/2024/02/22/theater/jellys-last-jam-review.html

"That painful history can be alchemized into thrilling entertainment is both the central idea and the takeaway experience of “Jelly’s Last Jam,” the jaw-dropping Encores! revival that opened on Wednesday at City Center. Especially in its first act, as it tells the intertwined stories of Jelly Roll Morton and the early years of jazz, it offers up wonder after wonder, in songs and dances so neatly conceived and ferociously performed that in the process of blowing the roof off the building they also make your hair stand on end."

Thanks for sharing but the Times review is behind a paywall.

The running time is 2 hours and 20 minutes. The first act is much longer than the second.

Me thinks this is a show that benefits from a critic’s seat. I have not seen it yet, but I have heard varied opinions.

Thanks.
Saw the original production so looking forward to revisiting it. My only disappointment is the casting of Billy Porter but maybe h

I appreciate the help/info. I ended up going with Orch Row H Center.

Thanks. :)

Looking to purchase tickets as a gift and have a quick question about seating.

I have the option of Orch Row H center or Dress Circle Row A center. Wasn't sure which way to go as I couldn't figure out what row the Dress Circle over hangs the orchestra.

Thanks.

I think I prefer Nicholas Christopher bald over this wig. I didn't even know it was him at first.

Play Esq. said: "That’s not surge pricing. That’s just second market sales pricing.


Surge pricing occurs at initial on sale when a distributor like Ticketmaster sees demand far exceeds supply. As a result, a Taylor Swift floor seat, for example, can start at 800 if you got an early on sale and move to 3000 if you’re lucky enough to get on a general on sale and that same seat is available.

Not that I’m representative of anything but my own opinion, but I wasn’t really interested in seeing this, but I amveryinterested now.

I assume I am in the minority but I still really want to see Isabel Keating.

Have you no shame? Seriously. This is both cruel and unhinged.

The only shame is when false fronts are put up to hide what’s really going on. Theatre history is full of these situations.
First it was “she’ll be back in a couple of days.” Now it’s “hospitalized and not coming back

Jelly's Last Jam Encores!

I know there is the 20% off with the code dmjelly but with looking at the sales so far for the second week with one night looking at maybe 30% sold will they possibly offer a better code?

Would love to go over to see them but my luck I would get there and they would be out of the show. Happened to me three times during their run in Shucked. I finally gave up.

She was a class act on and off the stage. She will be greatly missed.
