by Keith Waits - Feb 4, 2020

Once On This Island is a pretty good show, but this production is closer to great. As with the recent Broadway revival, Robert Fleming exploits the aspect of fable or folk tale at work in the story to interject thoughts of the aftermath of generations of colonialism and the state of island cultures brutalized by nature and Superpowers.

A close friend recently told me there was no cure for climate change.  Too many people are on the planet.  He theorized the solution was to eliminate two-thirds of the world's population.  Ebenezer Scrooge also shares the same sentiment.  If the sick and downtrodden cannot survive then they will help 'decrease the surplus population.'  A Christmas Carol in Harlem updates Charles Dickens' classic novella into modern times with a socially contemplative spin.

If you've ever thought, "They'll turn anything into a musical"…well, you're not wrong. Yet somehow, a musical about a competition to win a truck in a small Texas town brings subject matter that might be heavier than the truck itself.

by Evann Normandin - Feb 12, 2019

Aziza Barne's BLKS is a stop-you-in-your-tracks, laugh-out-loud comedy that is about to take DC by storm. Barnes' electric writing powerfully celebrates, queerness, sisterhood and the implications of being 'Black and alive.' With director Nataki Garrett at the helm, the cast brings Aziza's words to life with infectious joy. My cheeks still hurt from smiling.
