Wind Me Up, Maria!
A Go-Go Musical

Created and Directed by Prof. Natsu Onoda Power with Chalres “Shorty Corleone” Garris

The Sunday, November 6 – 2:00 PM matinee
will be followed by a post-show Chili Hour with the Groove Yard Band (formerly known as the Graveyard Band)

This Doyle Engaging Difference Program event will feature live music, food from iconic DC landmark Ben’s Chili Bowl (a location also featured in the show), and a conversation with the band, cast members, and Georgetown faculty and staff led by Prof. Maurice Jackson (African American Studies), Prof. Sylvia Onder (Anthropology) & Prof. Leslie Hinkson (Sociology).

Maria, a DC native and a rising senior at Georgetown, has a dilemma – it is the summer and she has not landed a job or an internship; and yet, all she wants to do is write and perform Go-Go music. With its non-stop party groove fueled by congas, cowbells, timbales, and call and response interactions with the audience, Go-Go is the signature sound of DC. This world premiere is the first ever Go-Go musical and features Go-Go musicians from throughout the DC region. This show will get you out of your seats and shaking your booty!
