Avon Theatre Documentary Night: MISS SHARON JONES!


272 Bedford St., Stamford, CT Phone: 203.967.3660.

7:30 pm. Two-time Academy Award®-winner Barbara Kopple (HARLAN COUNTY USA, SHUT UP AND SING) follows Grammy-nominated R&B dynamo Sharon Jones during the most courageous year of her life. Often compared to the legendary James Brown because of her powerful and energetic performances, Sharon Jones is no stranger to challenge. For years her music career struggled as she was kept in the wings by a music industry that branded her "too short, too black, too fat." After decades of working odd jobs, from a corrections officer to a wedding singer, Sharon had a middle-aged breakthrough after joining forces with Brooklyn R&B outfit The Dap Kings. In 2013, on the eve of the release of the much-anticipated album Give The People What They Want, Sharon was diagnosed with a life-threatening illness. MISS SHARON JONES! is a triumphant crowd-pleaser that captures an irrepressible human spirit as she battles back to where she belongs --center stage. Members $7, non members $12, students $9
