Keeme chats with Bridgeport native and Broadway performer Juwan Alan Crawley about Broadway and Black Lives Matter
Fifteen year old Ajibola Tajudeen, better known as Keeme, is the host of New Paradigm Theatre's web series on BroadwayWorld. "Konversations with Keeme". Keeme interviews seasoned television and film professionals like Tamara Tunie of Law and Order: Special Victims Unit and Renee Lawless of Tyler Perry's The Have and the Have Nots, as well as Broadway veterans such as Emmy and Grammy winner, Paul Bogaev, and Broadway pros Christine Dwyer, Kelly Grant, local leaders and more.
The series follows Keeme's interviews as he receives advice on "the business", performing, and leadership from the pros in the performing arts industry. Staying current, the series is now "at home" and being called "Koronacation with Keeme" and asks how our stars are staying "creative during corona". This month's focus is on interviews with people of color and their take on nation events and Black Lives Matter.
New Paradigm Theatre Company is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit theatre promoting social responsibility and fostering creative problem solvers, leaders, and global citizens through theatre arts education and productions. This series is one of the ways that NPT features their outstanding Youth Board of directors (all the production and on-camera work is facilitated by our Youth with some guidance from our Pros). Artistic Director and Broadway veteran, Kristin Huffman says, "New Paradigm is a theatre with a social conscience. We produce events and shows that not only entertain with Broadway pros, but that also connect directly to our community and teach youth leadership. Onstage and off we support and teach equality and diversity.
Today's interview (found HERE) is with Juwan Alan Crawley (Broadway: Aladdin). He talks honestly about what "Black Lives Matters" means to him and the theatre community. Keeme and Juwan speak about what young leaders, like Keeme, can do during the Corona quarantine to make a difference. https://www.juwancrawley.com/
