LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess) — Singer-songwriter Jackson Browne will perform at a pair of intimate benefit concerts to support The Actors' Gang Theatre in Culver City, CA.
The two concerts, set for March 22 and 29, will be entirely acoustic with Jackson joined by longtime backing vocalists Chavonne Stewart and Alethea Mills. The shows will be quite intimate, with only 90 tickets available per show.
"The Actors Gang Theater is a jewel in the middle of LA – a world-class repertory company under the direction of actor and director Tim Robbins. They have staged their innovative productions here for years and taken them throughout the world, and I've been fortunate to see many of them," says Jackson Browne. "They also work in the prison system here, and there is a continuity that runs through their theater work and their work on behalf of social justice. Their recent productions of Harlequino: On to Freedom, The Exonerated, and Lyrics From Lockdown gave me the idea of doing a residency in support of their work, and introducing this brilliant theater to my audience."
Since 1982, The Actors' Gang has created and presented over 150 bold, original works and reinterpretations of classics. Based in Los Angeles the Gang has performed in 45 States in the US and throughout the world on five continents.
