“Live at the Bathurst Street Theatre” will debut on November 30 on WLIW in New York at 11:30pm and air across select Public Television stations through to the end of December.  During this time, tickets will be offered exclusively through Public Television Station pledge drives.  On January 17, 2014, tickets will also be available through other ticket outlets.  For information on air times, please check your local Public Television listings.


Recorded live at the Bathurst Street Theatre in Toronto, Canada, “Live at the Bathurst Street Theatre” will transport viewers from Spain to Morocco, from France to Colombia, and from Africa back home again with more stops in between.  Amidst these signature works that explore culture and our fascinating reactions to it, Jesse Cook paces this elegant show with poignant and lyrical works that highlight the diverse strengths of a band that has long been dedicated to Cook’s artistic vision.  Among these fluid and transcendent moments come compositions that drive the artists and audience to dizzying heights with forceful, percussive works that demand a visceral response.  A few soulful vocals and a rousing finale rounds off the show with the audience literally on their feet singing along, backed by a stage overflowing with Cook’s band, featured guests, and an all female drumming ensemble.  Adventurous and epic, the musical exploration found on “Live at the Bathurst Street Theatre” will enlighten, engage, and inspire you.
