Photo Coverage: ALL AMERICAN GIRLS in Rehearsal

Layon Gray, the writer and director of the long-running Off-Broadway hit Black Angels Over Tuskegee, continues to expand African-American theatre with his latest work, ALL-AMERICAN GIRLS, a tale racism, deceit and betrayal after the coach of an all-Negrofemale baseball team goes missing in 1945 Chicago. The drama captures an era in American history when women were called on to keep baseball alive as the men went off to fight in World War II.

Winner of an NAACP Award for Best Play, ALL-AMERICAN GIRLS will feature "One Life to Live" star Daphanee Duplaix and Cover Girl model Mari White, along with Setor Attipoe, Yasha Jackson, Ashley Jeffrey, Arlene McGruder, Chantal Nchako, Catherine Peoples, and Antoinette Robertson.

Previews began August 4th and opened last night, August 25th at The Actors Temple Theatre.  BroadwayWorld was invited inside the dress rehearsal room and brings you photo coverage below!

Performances are Wednesday evenings at 8pm and Thursday evenings at 7pm, in rep with Black Angels over Tuskegee. Tickets, which are $36.50 to $59.50, are available through Telecharge.com or by calling 212-239-6200.

ALL-AMERICAN GIRLS is produced Off-Broadway by Edmund Gaynes, The Black Gents, and The Layon Gray Experience.
