Based on John Ball’s novel which inspired the Oscar-winning film and the Emmy-winning television series, In the Heat of the Night pits a visiting black detective from California against a small Alabama town simmering with anger over desegregation. A fitting reflection of America in the 1960s, this Off-Broadway hit is provocative, timely, and uncomfortably relevant. Adapted by Matt Pelfrey.
Orginal music composed by Mark Holden and Michael Lopez.
Includes audience Q&A sessions with director Brian Kite and playwright Matt Pelfrey, as well as political journalist Todd Purdum.
Recorded in Los Angeles before a live audience at The James Bridges Theater, UCLA in October of 2014.
