Fresh off of a critically acclaimed run in The Total Bent at The Public Theater, Ato Blankson-Wood makes his Joe’s Pub debut in an evening that blends poetry, story-telling and music. Ato is a New York based actor and singer hailing from Silver Spring, Maryland. The third of five children born to Ghanaian parents, his childhood home was full of dancing, laughter, story and song. The little house on Ivywood Lane was his first and only home. It was there his family taught him to love jazz, hip hop, disco, rock, gospel, show-tunes, and highlife and inspired him to work in theater and music.
Mr. Blankson-Wood delivers a reflective ballad with silken authority, but also rips into the slashing up-tempo songs with a flair that recalls any number of great black R&B stars.— Charles Isherwood, The New York Times
