Celebrate Black History month by joining your Bay Area Bison as we enjoy The Colored Museum play presented by the African- American Shakespeare Company. A portion of the ticket sales from this fundraiser will go towards the Bay Area Bison scholarship fund. Be sure to invite your family and friends out for an afternoon enjoying the arts.
For more details, see play description below:
A poignant, socially-conscious, satirical comedy, THE COLORED MUSEUM is a depiction of black culture in America, especially relevant in today’s world of “Black Lives Matter”. Tony Award-winning playwright, George C. Wolfe, takes us on a journey of Black culture with an “in-your-face” non-apologetic, “take no prisoners” satire that electrifies, unsettles, and delights audiences of all colors. THE COLORED MUSEUM redefines our ideas of what it means to be black in contemporary America as the various exhibits depicts old and new stereotypes.
For the first time in the Bay Area, our own “Fantastic Four” — four distinguished directors, collaborate to bring 12 vignettes to life.
“Mr. Wolfe is the kind of satirist…who takes no prisoners. The shackles of the past have been defied by Mr. Wolfe’s fearless humor, and it’s a most liberating revolt.” —NY Times
“Brings forth a bold new voice that is bound to shake up blacks and whites with separate-but-equal impartiality. True satire.” —Newsweek
Ticket sales end Saturday Feb. 20th at 6pm. Tickets will be distributed the day of the event at the door. Please contact HUACSFBA@gmail.com if you have any questions.
