THE CRITICALLY-ACCLAIMED CELEBRATION OF CONTEMPORARY BLACKNESS ARRIVES ON BROADWAY

Over the course of a single day in the pulsing heart of Brooklyn, the hopes, sorrows, fears, and joys of seven men reverberate far beyond the barbershops and basketball courts of their community. Vulnerable and vibrant, raw and alive — these are the THOUGHTS OF A COLORED MAN.

A powerful theatrical testament by Keenan Scott II, THOUGHTS OF A COLORED MAN weaves spoken word, slam poetry and rhythm into a mosaic of the inner lives of Black men, and heralds the arrival of an essential new voice to the American Theater.
