No Time For Dreaming

by Matt Wilkinson

In association with Wales Millennium Centre, Glass Half Full Productions and Daptone Records. 

Wild, transcendent gig theatre about American soul singer Charles Bradley.  

Backed by a live soul funk band, Charles recounts the story of his remarkable life: living on the New York subways as a teen, finding God up a mountain in Alaska, performing as a James Brown impersonator in Brooklyn and finally meeting his soul mate, guitarist Tom Brenneck. Their resulting No Time For Dreaming album would make Charles one of the oldest ever debutants on the US Billboard charts. He was 62.
