Breaker's Down and Out will combine storytelling with multilayered music ranging from blues to funk. It is billed as "dry, soulful, broken and proud." The performances will feature special guest appearances from Amber Renee Gray (An Octaroon, Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812) and Jacob Ming-Trent (Shrek, Hands on a Hardbody, Julie Taymor's A Midsummer Night's Dream). Breaker will also be backed by a band including Passing Strange players Jon Spurney and Christian Cassan, along with Cody Owen Stine, Jeremy Chatzky, Sean Nowell and Ron McBee.
