Needed an African American Actress and a Caucasian male age 35-45 to play various roles in A Call to Conscience‘s production of “Next to Normal: The Thelonious Monk Story.” Thelonious Monk was a musical genius who changed the shape of music in the 1940’s. The misdiagnosis of a mental illness and abuse of prescription drugs caused brain damage which derailed his musical career and eventually led to his death from a stroke. The play celebrate the musical genius of Thelonious Sphere Monk and explore the pervasive misdiagnosis and discriminatory practices toward him and the societal stigma that plagued his career and continues to carry on today.
