TheatreSouth Atlanta brings back George C. Wolfe's THE COLORED MUSEUM one more time

Hello everybody,
I want you to come out and support Atlanta's newest quality theater group, TheatreSouth Atlanta. I am very excited about their upcoming plans for bringing classics and new plays to Atlanta.

TheatreSouth Atlanta Presents
World famous and multi-award winning stage play
“The Colored Museum”
by George C. Wolfe

Because there was such popular demand and critical response when it was originally mounted in October of this
year, TheatreSouth Atlanta is remounting the classic for a much longer run. It is scheduled to run from October 30th through November 22nd at the Porter Sanford III Performing Arts & Community Center, 3181 Rainbow
Dr. in Decatur, Georgia.

In a rare Atlanta mounting of this play, Director Herman LeVern Jones, remains very loyal to the original script, but adds some minor nuanced updating. The play still consists of 11 play lets, all deflating black stereotypes in America. The characters in this classic and Dramatist Guild Award winning play are all too familiar to black folks everywhere. It lampoons certain African-American stereotypes. Its themes are so rich with pathos and irony
and might seem stereotypical and over-the-top, but there “might” be comparable mirror-images reflected in black literature, black films, and even black reality television shows. This hilarious play constantly challenges the audience and forces them to choose between laughter or tears with a little bit of both (laughing through their tears) as they sit in their seats watching this superbly presented play. And when the perky stewardess for Celebrity Slaveship Airways steps out on the stage at the beginning of "The Colored Museum" and bids us to "fasten your
shackles," you know you are going on a “flight” of your life and brace yourself for the turbulence ahead. Be sure to reserve your seats in advance as the much anticipated production is sure to be a popular theatrical event. Tickets are: General Admission: $25, Advanced Tix: $20, Student/Seniors: $15, Group of 10 or more $18.50.
