Black No More, a new musical inspired by George S. Schuyler’s Afrofuturist novel set during the Harlem Renaissance, is the story of Max Disher (Brandon Victor Dixon) who’s eager to try the mysterious machine invented by Dr. Junius Crookman (Tariq Trotter) that guarantees to “solve the American race problem” —by turning Black people white. Through a fusion of music by two-time Grammy Award winner Tariq Trotter (Black Thought, The Roots), and choreography by two-time Tony Award winner Bill T. Jones (Spring Awakening and Fela!), with book by Academy Award winner John Ridley (12 Years a Slave), and directed by The New Group’s founding Artistic Director Scott Elliott, Black No More is one Black man’s journey colliding with truths of race and identity.
The musical adaptation of Black No More, the Harlem Renaissance-era satire novel, revives author George S. Schuyler’s searing examination of American race relations. Get Black No More tickets on TodayTix now.
The Black No More musical, like the book, centers on a young Black man named Max Disher living in 1930s Harlem. After being rejected by a white woman at a speakeasy because of his race, he hears of a machine invented by Dr. Junius Crookman to turn Black people white and is eager to try it. Crookman claims that his machine will, more broadly, “solve the American race problem.” Soon, as a white man named Matthew Fisher, he is more romantically successful, and he even infiltrates a white supremacist organization. But as more Black people turn white and there are less targets for people’s racist attitudes, a horrific, bitter campaign ensues to find and root out anyone with supposed Black ancestry, no matter their outward skin tone.
Black No More features a book by John Ridley and music and lyrics by Tariq Trotter (who also stars as Dr. Junius Crookman). Scott Elliott directs alongside music director Daryl Waters, and iconic dancer/choreographer Bill T. Jones choreographs.
