2008 Rewind: J for 'Jump'



“Jump.” For the 100-year anniversary of the birth of native son Louis Jordan, “Arkansongs” host and longtime Jordan champion Stephen Koch teamed with Cliff Baker and Wildwood to produce a musical revue of Jordan’s life for the stage. A down-home catfish fry (a la perhaps Jordan’s best song, “Saturday Night Fish Fry”) with all the fixin’s kicked off the night and hundreds filled Cabe Theater to see Lawrence Hamilton and an impressive local cast shine in the year’s liveliest stage production. A close second: the Rep’s winning take on “Sherlock Holmes: The Final Adventure.”
