About the Show

The satire of The Colored Museum has electrified, discomforted, and delighted audiences of all colors, redefining our ideas of what it means to be Black in contemporary America. From Git on Board to The Last Mama-on-the-Couch Play, the museum’s “exhibits” undermine Black stereotypes – old and new – and return to the facts of what being Black means.

Directed by Ron Foreman

Produced by special arrangement with Broadway Play Publishing, Inc.
