Donny Hathaway was an American jazz, blues, soul and gospel artist whose Grammy-winning work made him a major force on the music scene. But Hathaway was a troubled genius -- a man who often refused to take the prescribed medication that was meant to help control the debilitating symptoms of his paranoid schizophrenia. Now, Mosaic Theater Company's production of "Twisted Melodies" offers a fictionalized journey through that tortured and brilliant mind, giving you a glimpse into the life of a man lost in space and time as he battles a truly insidious mental illness. A theatrical experience that aims to captivate with its penetrating exploration of the psychology of a musical legend, "Twisted Melodies" at the Atlas Performing Arts Center in Washington, D.C. is also designed to open up conversation about the ways mental illness is treated in our society.
