About Thoughts of a Colored Man

A NEW AMERICAN PLAY FOR A NEW BROADWAY

As the sun rises on a single day in the pulsing heart of Brooklyn, seven Black men are about to discover the extraordinary - together. By Keenan Scott II, one of today’s boldest new voices, Thoughts of a Colored Man blends spoken word, slam poetry, rhythm, and humor into a daringly universal new play. Welcome to the vibrant inner life of being Black, proud, and thriving in the 21st century.

This richly theatrical mosaic shines brilliant light onto these men, a tight-knit brotherhood, revealing their most triumphant selves. Their vibrant and vulnerable experiences and feelings reverberate far beyond the barbershops and basketball courts of their community. They reveal the deeply human hopes, joys, sorrows, fears, and dreams of all men, all people.

Clever, Great acting, Great writing, Thought-provoking, Relevant

See it if you like a good story in a non-traditional way: I feel like I really know these seven characters just spending 90 minutes with them.

Don’t see it if you are looking for a traditional play, but know that you are missing a current story sharing important messages with good staging.
