Harlem School of the Arts theater department presents The Colored Museum, April 24 – May 3

Scheduled to run from Friday April 24th – May 3rd, Harlem School of the Arts theatre department’s presentation of writer George C. Wolfe’s The Colored Museum is said to take the audience on a journey through the Black American experience. This play, directed by Alfred Preisser, also features the music of Aretha Franklin, Michael Jackson, Diana Ross, and the Temptations, and famous African American literary pieces. Get your tickets! Details below.

 

 

An unforgettable cast of characters brings George C. Wolfe’s “personal exorcism” of Black cultural myths to life through the humor, pain, and shockingly brutal honesty of Wolfe’s writing. This production of the 1986 work maintains it’s timelessness, while inserting elements of the current Black experience for a new audience all performed and interpreted by the Harlem School of the Arts theater students ages 13-18.
