Herndon: Only LIGHT Can Do That!

A living history musical celebrating the greatness of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.


Hasani Allen

ArtSpace Herndon presents Only LIGHT Can Do That! on Jan. 16, 4-5 p.m. at Floris United Methodist Church. Only LIGHT Can Do That! is a living history musical celebrating the genius, the greatness, the legacy of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Starring actor, dancer, singer Hasani Allen (NextStop Theatre’s “Kiss Me Kate”) as Dr. King, and featuring music, beloved songs and actual testimonies from the period, this inspirational performance will bring you back to the turbulent 60s and the “drum major for justice” who dared to dream a dream and persisted to his untimely death to see that dream live on and on.

Hasani Allen is known as a “triple threat.” He can sing, he can dance and he is one incredible actor. Allen has been in the theater from a very young age, performing in his first professional production at the Walnut Street Theater at the age of ten. He most recently wowed standing room only audiences in NextStop Theater’s production of “Kiss Me Kate” (Paul) receiving rave reviews by Broadway World and DC Metro Theater Arts.

Special appearances by Candice Bostwick, Sumayyah Abdullah, Martina Green, Call to Harmony Men’s Choir, and Treble Clefs Ensemble.
