THE COLORED MUSEUM
FRIDAY, MAY 1 – SUNDAY, MAY 3, 2015
Harlem School of the Arts (HSA) Theatre Department Presents The Colored Museum written by George C. Wolfe, directed and designed by Alfred Preisser with choreography by Assistant Director Tracy Jack. The Colored Museum takes the audience on a journey through the Black American experience.
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.
