Grammy and Emmy Award winner Christopher Jackson will be streaming a concert on August 15 and you can watch, thanks to Texas Performing Arts. Jackson is best known for originating the role of George Washington in the Broadway smash Hamilton.
Tickets for Christopher Jackson: Live from the West Side are $40 per household and can be purchased at Texasperformingarts.org. Ticket holders will have access to the livestream performance plus an additional 72 hours of on-demand viewing of a video recording of the livestream, available beginning one hour after the live broadcast ends. Proceeds from ticket sales will support Texas Performing Arts’ reopening and recovery efforts.
Accompanied by a live band, Jackson will perform songs from his favorite musicals, pop standards, original material, and he will share stories about starting on stage in In The Heights and Hamilton.
“Nonprofit arts presenters are the lifeblood of the performing arts industry and a pipeline for young talent. Without them there is no Broadway,” said Jackson. “While everything is shutdown during this terrible pandemic, I am delighted to be able to help spread some joy and help raise some much needed support for these deserving organizations.”
