Stage and screen star Taye Diggs performs in concert Oct. 6 at the Jewish Community Center of San Francisco.
Show time at Kanbar Hall is 8 PM. Music director is Ben Toth.
Diggs, according to press notes, will offer "re-envisioned standards, musical theater hits and his own spin on today’s popular songs."
Diggs has appeared on Broadway in Rent, Chicago, Wicked and Carousel, and Off-Broadway in Andrew Lippa's The Wild Party. He has been seen in the films "Rent," "Chicago" and "How Stella Got Her Groove Back," and the series "Kevin Hill," "Will and Grace" and "Ally McBeal."
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
