2 UCW MAY 3 - 9, 2023 WWW.UPANDCOMINGWEEKLY.COM MAY 4 - 28 JELLY'S LAST JAM CAPE FEAR REGIONAL THEATRE Take your seat at the legendary Jungle Inn Nightclub with your host, Jazz pio- neer Jelly Roll Morton, for a night of mu- sic that might change his life. When the Chimney man comes to ferry Jelly's soul away, he gets one last chance to make amends for his mistakes. From the back alleys of New Orleans to the stages of New York – this sizzling story has seductive harmony and a score you won't forget! This play is rated PG-13 for language and adult themes. Tickets can be bought at https://bit.ly/cfrtjellys. MAY 5 - 7 ALL IN THE TIMING GILBERT THEATER Featuring four diverse but equally hys- terical one-act comedies, David Ives' All in the Timing is a witty, romantic, absurd and existentially-minded eve- ning of theatre. In Sure Thing, a couple on a first date has the opportunity to reset and try again each time they say the wrong thing. Words, Words, Words explores the idea that given enough time, three monkeys in a room could eventually compose any given text, including Shakespeare's Hamlet. In The Philadelphia, a man enters a strange pocket of the universe where the only way to get what he wants is to ask for the opposite. In Variations on the Death of Leon Trotsky, the audience is treated to the vision of the famous Marxist waxing poetical - and dying, over and over again. Tickets can be bought at https://ci.ovationtix.com/36002/production/1151812. MAY 12 - 31 FIELD OF BLUE 342 GLENSFORD DRIVE The Field of Blue, sponsored by the Fayetteville Police Foundation, is set up in front of BJ's Wholesale Club.
