“Deeper Shade of Blues,” a two-act one-man show written and performed by Joel P. E. King premiers at The Space. And, there’s still time to see it! Tonight is Saturday at 8 p.m. and tomorrow is Sunday at 6 p.m. for only a $10 admission. Just go to THE SPACE in St. Louis on 320-24 N. Vandeventer.
Joel weaves in music with the history of struggle and mining of spirit in the African American male experience throughout our history as a nation. His chameleon-changes of costume, speech, and point of view are fluid and poignant.
JOEL P. E. KING, a 26-year-old native of East Saint Louis, performs in the St. Louis Metropolitan area. Joel performed in the gospel touring show “A House Divided” where Tyler Perry complimented him on a “job well done”. In the film “Pieces of a Dream” Joel will star as a young leading actor, Chris.
In addition to perfoming, Joel has been writing since he was twelve, and aims at work that heals and reveals. Joel wrote, produced, and directed “A Mother’s Cry” and “Real Life.” He is developing a television series “Through the Eyes” based on a true story.
