Following its successful staged reading in 2022, 'Seeking' returns to the Amaturo Theatre at The Broward Center for the Performing Arts as a full production, promising an unforgettable experience. Showtimes are July 26th at 7 PM and July 27 at 2 PM & 7 PM.

I am ecstatic to see this show come to life at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts. I am overwhelmed by the talented people who have come together to bring this timeless and relevant story to life. This play touches on many aspects of the Black American experience and the human experience. I am thrilled to share this with the world and eagerly await its profound impact on audiences,' said Darius V. Daughtry.

FAB is proud to provide grant support for performances like 'Seeking,' a transformative narrative that underscores the importance of heritage, self-discovery, and the power of artistic expression.
