Sooo.... since I am not in my office I feel so out of the loop.BUT, with Reidel’s latest article ... does he know something we don’t? Is Broadway shutting for 8 weeks not 4?

Interesting response... Time and time again we have had shows on Broadway with “major stars” and they fail. Also shows with no stars break records. We have no way of telling what will actually work.
I think it is cool this show is not waiting. There is something to be said for a show saying forget the Tony Awards and let’s put on a show.
The only difference between Broadway and The Apollo is the possibility of a Tony Award. Which is fine but there is more than that.
So the lauded production of The Publics For Colored Girls is releasing their director Leah Gardner.
After many reports fights among cast members, creative team members including Martha and Camille the commercial producers have chosen to not broadcast bring Leah Gardiner to broadway.
My question here is .... what theatre could they possibly be going into?
Also, how can they just fire the director?

Every single social,racial issue you can think of tosses in just for impact. In fact I was sitting through the show thinking well, certainly the critics are going to kill this show.
Actually I kept this though until the last seven minutes of the show w
People sell out all the time. Black or not, the show is wrong. Being Black In America is an understanding. There is a history and understanding. Not all "get it" much like Jeremy. Setting Black in America back! WAY BACK!
Name the other active black producers on Broadway?
Having a black director and writer means nothing about the content.
This is an excellent question and I am happy to educate and respond.
In the African American Museum in Washington DC, there is an exhibit on display that logs the history of the way "black exploitation" (not the films) began. Dating back to early days of "cooing". Making black people UGLY, Big liped, Big hair, Larger than life eyes....all these things done to create saddness for the less fortunate, building a system where when you see a person like this you feel sor
I am all for new theatre and work that is stirring it this is pure racism!
