Modern Warrior is a live theatrical music experience co-created by United States Army veteran Jaymes Poling and musician Dominick Farinacci. This dynamic production explores the psychological weights of war, the challenges of reintegration as a civilian, and the potential for positive personal and communal growth.

Narrated by Staff Sergeant Poling, who spent three years in Afghanistan as an infantryman with the 82nd Airborne Division, the autobiographical production details his time in the military and his subsequent transition to civilian life back home. It’s complemented by dynamic musical performances led by Dominick Farinacci (Mack Avenue recording artist and former Global Ambassador to Jazz at Lincoln Center).

The Modern Warrior initiative aims to build bridges between veteran and civilian communities through live performances, collaborative workshops, and informative panel discussions. By focusing on stories of post-traumatic growth, the team hopes to help destigmatize our veterans’ experiences through deeper understanding from the community and by providing inspirational hope for all.

COMPLIMENTARY tickets are available to all veterans/active military and one additional family member or loved one, but the veteran discount code MWLVETS must be entered upon checkout.
