About BRICKS: A New Musical By Charlene Jean & Franklin Rankin

Join multi-faceted artists Charlene Jean and Franklin Rankin as they present songs from their new musical BRICKS, in honor and celebration of Juneteenth. BRICKS, a funk rock show, centers on a young woman blessed with the ability to see the spirits of Black and Indigenous spaces that flourished before her time; a gift inherited from her mother. We meet Maelle Etienne, a gifted child and her equally gifted and protective mother, Colette Etienne. D’Aija, Colette’s rebellious and late older sister, connects with Maelle in ways that Colette fears would lead to Maelle’s demise.

BRICKS has been described as “a 20-year music tour of retroactive-reparations,” reaching from modern-day Washington Square Park to biblical Jericho. Hear songs from BRICKS, including “Fog,” “Jericho,” and other pieces connecting our past to our futures.

Charlene Jean is a 2022 MAP Grant Fund awardee, a 2023 New Georges Audrey Resident, a 2023/2024 Creative Capital WILD FUTURES finalist, and a 2023 finalist for the Jonathan Larson Grant, Van Lier New Voices, Richard Rodgers Award, and NYSAF Founders Award.

Franklin Rankin is a professional guitarist/songwriter. Having worked with world class artists such as Nona Hendryx, Azealia Banks, and more, Rankin has been featured on “The Tonight Show” with Jimmy Fallon. Rankin leads the pop/soul group Big Stuff and The Franklin Rankin Quartet, a jazz/funk collective.
