The Divas of Eastwood
by Renaissance Guild
Jan. 29 - Feb. 06, 2016
Ladies and gentlemen, The Renaissance Guild 's Year of the Diva presents ..........
The Divas of Eastwood. Directed by Bill Lewis. This is an original musical production featuring your favorite songs from the Eastwood and Keyhole Club in CONCERT!!!!!
Divas of Eastwood is a musical revue celebrating the Chitlin’ Circuit and the artists and music that traveled the circuit. It is a musical memory of the Eastwood Country Club, Keyhole Club and Carver Community Cultural Center, the entertainers who played on the circuit and the Circuit itself.
The Eastwood Country Club becomes the metaphor for all of this, presenting, as it did, such “Divas” of that time as Dinah Washington, Etta James, Sarah Vaughn, Gladys Knight, The Supremes, and current Divas Jill Scott, Erykah Badu, and many more. By extension the Revue and the Eastwood represents the music of seven decades of African American music, the history and its influence on today’s music.

Developed by Renaissance Artistic Director Bill Lewis. Lewis said the cast will help shape the piece, which will focus on local performance venues — including the space that would eventually become the Carver — that were once part of the “Chitlin’ Circuit.”
