Kareem M. Lucas Presents Solo Show 'Black Is Beautiful, But It Ain't Always Pretty' at JACK Kareem M. Lucas Presents Solo Show 'Black Is Beautiful, But It Ain't Always Pretty' at JACK
by BWW News Desk - Nov 20, 2018

In this solo show, Kareem M. Lucas reanimates the memory of a never-ending NYC night - a wild roller coaster ride through alcohol, drugs, sex, joy, loss, and self-discovery.

The clock is ticking. (more...)
