Tony Award winner George C. Wolfe’s groundbreaking comedy has electrified, discomforted, and delighted audiences of all colors, skewering stereotypes and redefining what it means to be Black in contemporary America. “The Colored Museum” presents 11 humorous yet thought-provoking exhibits of black culture that remain relevant in today’s world of “Black Lives Matter.” From the depths of the Celebrity Slave Ship to the spinning heights of Harlem audiences are reminded of the contributions Blacks have made to American history and their battle to maintain their uniqueness.
