Vinnette Carroll

My theatrical home.

The Urban Arts Corps was founded by Ms Carroll in 1967 in lower Manhattan near The Village at 26 W. 20th Street. Out of this marvelous Theatrical organization great plays such as Don’t Bother Me, I Can’t Cope, Your Arm’s Too Short To Box With GOD, But Never Jam Today and other plays and musicals were born.

"But Never Jam Today" Cleavant Derricks, Sheila Ellis and Jai Oscar St. John. But Never Jam Today was a 1979 musical with music by Bert Keyes & Bob Larimer, lyrics by Larimer, and a book by both Larimer and Vinnette Carroll. The musical is based on the works of Lewis Carroll.

Your Arms Are Too Short To Box With GOD – Broadway

Your Arm’s Too Short To Box With GOD played on Broadway several times and was well received each time. There was even talk of bringing it back yearly at Christmas, but it was not to be… not yet!
