Marietta's New Theatre in the Square

Saturday on The Local Take on WCLK  I spoke with Broadway star Chester Gregory about his one-man show "The Eve of Jackie Wilson" and how it relates to Metro-Atlanta. Chester Gregory proclaims that Jackie Wilson(known as "Mr. Entertainment" at the height of his career) is one of the most influential Rock-n-Roll artist of the 20th Century.  "The Eve of Jackie Wilson" brings to life his last concert that took place in September of 1975. This was to be a "comeback" tour for Jackie Wilson.
