Why: Prospect Theater Company concludes its Vision series, consisting of new musical theater pieces on film, with Don’t Stay Safe, a short work with book and lyrics by Cheryl L. Davis and music by Douglas J. Cohen, featuring Iris Beaumier, Latoya Edwards, and Nygel D. Robinson. A companion to Davis and Cohen’s full-length 2016 musical Bridges, about a multiracial family fighting for racial equality and LGBTQ rights from 1965 to 2008, Don’t Stay Safe follows three people as they deal with similar issues in 2020, when the world changed. The December 30 premiere of the fifteen-minute film, which was directed by Christina Franklin at the West End Theatre, with music direction by John Bronston and cinematography by Lesley Steele, will be followed by a live Q&A with members of the cast and crew.
