'Harriet, Rosa, and Me' at the Southampton Arts Center

A theatrical performance and concert this weekend

The Southampton Arts Center on Job’s Lane and the Southampton African American Museum will stage “Harriet, Rosa, and Me,” a theatrical presentation written and directed by JD Lawrence, an actor, comedian, and playwright, tomorrow at 7 p.m.

The show opens at a bus stop where a young woman named Hope has decided to skip school to avoid a black history exam. She eventually encounters Rosa, who refuses to get on the bus for a very different reason, and, later, Harriet. Both women identify themselves and impress on Hope the importance of black history. 

The show, which is both entertaining and educational, will be followed by a jazz performance by Charles Certain and Certain Moves. Tickets are $25, $15 for students.

On Sunday at 5 p.m., the classical pianist Tanya Gabrielian will launch a nine-date tour accompanying the release of her debut album, “Remix,” with a performance at the center. The program will include works by Bach, Rachmaninoff, Chopin, and Gershwin. Tickets are $15.
