Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar & Grill by Lanie Robertson (Sep 14 – Oct 7, 2018)

Ensemble member Alexis J. Roston reprises her award-winning role as Billie Holiday. Set in a seedy, Philadelphia bar in 1959, Lady Day weaves colorful memories with over a dozen musical classics. This iconic figure is haunted by her fall from grace in society and yet no one can deny her artistry.


In the Blood by Suzan-Lori Parks (Mar 8-31, 2019)*

Written by Pulitzer Prize Winner, Suzan Lori-Parks, In the Blood tells the story of Hester, a mother of five fatherless children, who tries to find help to make her children’s lives successful.  Living under a bridge and having the reputation as a “slut” on her, their future begins to grow dim.  A modern day riff on The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne.

Single Black Female by Lisa B. Thompson (May 3-19, 2019)*

Single Black Female (SBF) is a two-woman show with rapid-fire comic vignettes that explores the lives of African American middle class women.  We join these women as they search for love, clothes and dignity in a world that fails to recognize them amid a parade of stereotypical images.  SBF was a featured selection from the August Wilson New Play Initiative.  (Tickets on Sale February 1, 2019)

STAND UP! Book by Phyllis Curtwright (Jun 8 – 29, 2019)

Braving police brutality, high pressure water hoses, vicious dogs, racist taunts, and jail time, Birmingham school students march to reignite a stalled Civil Rights Movement.  As we witness youth standing at the forefront of the Black Lives Matter and the March for Our Lives move-ments, we invite you to experience the story of the unsung heroes of 1963’s Birmingham Children’s Crusade.
