'Still Life Goes On' is a four-character play set in the tumultuous year of 1968 in Buster’s Greenwich Village Nightclub. The music is composed by NEA and PEW Fellow Tyrone Brown (Max Roach, Rachelle Ferrell, Grover Washington, Jr. Fame).

“Still Life…”is classically structured with several surprising twists to some age-old themes: Unrequited love, a sensational Hollywood scandal, a sprinkling of betrayals, psychological and racial conflicts, and money schemes.

Critic, Rebecca Faulkner,  said  “’Still Life Goes On’ is an important and deeply poetical piece of political theater. Melton’s worldview is not limited to 1968, but spans the last century.

Thomas Farrell (Broadway 'Memphis' Producer) said, “I love the characters… I can’t put the script down.”
