On January 13th, 1979, the world lost Donny Hathaway, one of its greatest musicians and singers. In Robert King Jr.'s new thought-provoking musical, he introduces us to a side of Donny Hathaway we've never seen before: Donny's battle with the voices that haunted and tormented him were caused by paranoid schizophrenia.

The musical suggests that the night prior to Donny's jump off of the 15th story of the Essex House Hotel, he had a conversation at the bar with a fictional character by the name of Pamela Robinson. Pamela asks Donny what songs he would perform if he knew that he had one last time to perform. Conjuring up a band, the audience is taken into Donny's hallucination of that final concert.
