Dates of run: April 7-24, 2016
Directed by Bobby Bermea
Featuring Victor Mack* and Seth Rue
Lewis, a highly successful mathematician, has never found himself up against a problem he cannot solve. But underneath his veneer of success lies a soul troubled by questions of personal and cultural identity. Suffering from insomnia on the eve of the Million Man March, Lewis inadvertently summons the ghosts of his ancestors. Three generations of men (all played by one actor), from slavery through Black Power, challenge Lewis to embark on a journey combining past and present. Infused with abundant humor and woven through with original songs, Blue Door is a tour de force for two actors; a vivid, exuberantly theatrical play about the African-American male experience. With beautiful songs and haunting imagery, Pulitzer-nominated Blue Door will resonate with anyone who has ever struggled to live with – or escape – the past.
