'DA KINK IN MY HAIR Sells Out First Two Weeks at Horizon Theatre
'da Kink in My Hair by Trey Anthony sweeps Horizon Theatre in Atlanta with sold out shows in first two weeks and continues to be one of the hottest tickets in town.
Winner of four NAACP Theatre Awards and named Critics Choice by the London Evening Standard, 'da Kink is a music sensation that tells of love, hope, survival and redemption through eight women's trials and celebrations.
'da Kink continues to wow audiences at Horizon Theatre through August 28. Tickets and more information are available at www.horizontheatre.com.
As for the award-winning show's tremendous appeal and its sellouts in Atlanta, Anthony says, "I am overwhelmed by the success and I think women just really connect with this show. "It has been a dream of mine to bring it to American audiences. My other biggest dream is for Oprah to see it and I have been inviting her for the past 15 years. So, Oprah, if you are in town, there is a ticket with your name on it!"
'da Kink in My Hair is an emotionally charged stage musical with unforgettable stories of love, hope, survival and redemption. 'da Kink revolves around Novelette, a funny and frank West Indian hair stylist who serves as a confidant for the women in her shop and their everyday trials and tribulations, many which are familiar to black women. "If you want to know a black woman, you touch her hair," says Novelette, as she delves into the tresses and stresses of her clients to reveal their hidden stories. Trey Anthony uses 'da Kink in My Hair as a platform to masterfully blend real life stories of laughter, tears, revelation and inspiration.
Award-winning playwright Trey Anthony, known as "The Oprah Winfrey of the Canadian theatre scene," is currently National New Play Network Playwright-in-Residence at Horizon Theatre. 'da Kink will be re-imagined for Horizon audiences by Horizon Associate Artist, director Thomas W. Jones II, and revered musical director S. Renee Clark teaming up again after past Horizon hits like Three Sistahs, Right On and Uprising. Terry Burrell, last seen as the star of the ALLIANCE THEATRE's acclaimed show Ethel, will lead the cast of talented women through this moving musical night.
