Upper school Humanities II classes viewed “Bars and Measures,” at the Mosaic Theater Company. This is part of the class’s beauty and jazz unit, connected to the readings of short stories by Ralph Ellison. The class is taught by Mr. Clausen and Ms. Feist. The play is about Eric, a classical pianist, and Bilal, a jazz musician, brothers by blood, united through a love of music but separated by prison bars. Bilal’s trial exposes long-standing secrets within the family. The play was written by playwright and breakbeat poet Idris Goodwin.
