Grandeur imagines a meeting between an ambitious young journalist and the shape-shifting music legend, Gil Scott-Heron. Questions of legacy, art, hope, and redemption drive this funny and gut-wrenching exchange. It’s a homecoming for MacArthur Genius award winner Han Ong, who returns to Magic after a 25-year hiatus. The cast of GRANDEUR is led by Carl Lumbly* (ABC’s Alias, CBS’ Cagney & Lacey) as “Gil Scott-Heron,” and features Safiya Fredericks* as “Julie Toussaint” and Rafael Jordan* as “Steve Barron.”

In addition to Mr. Ong and Ms. Greco, the creative team includes Hana S. Kim (Scenic / Video Design), Alex Jaeger (Costume Design), Raymond Oppenheimer (Lighting Design), Sara Huddleston (Sound Design) and Jackie Scott (Props Design).
