No More Water | The Fire Next Time: The Gospel According to James Baldwin, the next evolution of Meshell Ndegeocello’s 2016 WaterWorks world premiere Can I Get A Witness: The Gospel of James Baldwin, pays homage to James Baldwin by creating a shared space for reflection, conversation and social change. Meshell’s transformative music and collaborative spirit ignites this genre-bending performance: a church service, a concert, a celebration, a testimonial, a call to action. Join us for a concert version (music only) of this work in addition to selections from Meshell’s prodigious discography.

Harlem stage was the commissioning producer of Can I Get A Witness: The Gospel of James Baldwin through its WaterWorks program. WaterWorks is supported by Time Warner and the National Endowment for the Arts.
