It sheds brilliant light into the hearts and minds of a community of men searching for their most triumphant selves. And what they reveal are the deeply human hopes, dreams, fears and sensitivities of all men, all people.

"Thoughts of a Colored Man" blends language, music and dance into a daringly universal new play. Welcome to the vibrant inner life of being Black, proud and thriving in the 21st century.

The world premiere will open the season and runs Sept. 4 - 22, 2019 at Syracuse Stage.
