WHAT DO YA’ll THINK? 🤔
Mathew Knowles and Je'Caryous Johnson have announced they are currently developing Survivor: The Destiny's Child Musical, about the girl group that launched the careers of Beyoncé Knowles, Kelly Rowland, and Michelle Williams.
Knowles (former Destiny's Child manager and father of Beyoncé and Solange Knowles) says the musical will be told through his perspective, stating, “I want to pull back the curtain. I feel it’s time to give the world an opportunity to hear, see, and feel the victories and failures that I’ve had as a husband, father, and manager who risked everything in pursuit of fulfilling dreams—those of mine and others.”

ONE DAY LEFT to see Congresswoman at Queens College at 3:00PM!
In a presidential campaign office in the near future, the Women+‘s party anxiously awaits the election results that may lead to America’s first female-identifying president. As disagreements erupt over the feasibility of radical ideals, a mysterious attack sends the party members on a fantastical journey through Aristophanes’ Athens to find the key to preventing a real-life tragedy. This tragicomic remix of “The Congresswomen,” which includes contemporary language, verse, and original songs (including original music by Tony Award-winner Stew), is an exploration of what it takes for women to wield power, and whether utopias can exist in the real world.

“I want to see a Broadway show where the strong independent black woman isn't punished; where the black teenager gets to live and go to the prom; where the black lady is the lead, not the sidekick. I want to see her dance and sing without permission simply because it's Tuesday. This is how we live our lives. It's time we see that on stage.”

Not every marriage proposal goes as planned. LOY A. WEBB’s THE LIGHT introduces us to RASHAD and GENESIS on what should be one of the happiest days of their lives, but their joy quickly unravels when ground-shifting accusations from the past resurface in this gripping two character drama.
Can their relationship survive the growing divide between them over who–and what–to believe? Directed by LOGAN VAUGHN, THE LIGHT is a reckoning that unfolds in real-time and peels away the layers of truth, doubt, pain, and ultimately the power of love. @ Laguardia Performing Arts Center
“A New Renaissance: Exploring the Cultural Impact of the Black Narrative and Identity
Inspired by Jeremy O. Harris’ “Daddy,” a panel will come together to dissect Black representation in today’s culture and its impact on the development of Black identities, as well as the implications of accessing, engaging and maintaining ownership over the Black narrative and identity.”
NEW GROUP NOW is a new series of public forums which locate New Group shows within the larger context of American and/or global society. Bringing together artists and thinkers across disciplines, the series asks vital questions at the center of New Group shows and of our present culture. A New Renai...
“In the village of Affreakah-Amirrorkah, no one questions that Akim is the one true, perfect beauty — not even her jealous classmates. But they’ll be damned before they let her be the leading lady in this story. A decidedly contemporary riff on a West African fable, Tori Sampson’s explosive epic is brimming with live music and dance, as these frenemies jockey for their rank in a culture built on ideals forever out of reach.”

“Inspired from a conversation with The Movement Theatre Company after their historic #25kin25days campaign for Aleshea Harris’ What To Send Up When It Goes Down, Advancing Arts Forward has teamed up with HowlRound Theatre Commons for a panel on the future crowdfunding in the theatre. The panel includes a staff member who works with arts projects at Kickstarter and theatre artists/producers who crowdfund using other platforms such Drip and Patreon. With a panel of theatremakers of color, we will also be holding space to discuss new opportunities that crowdfunding may offer along with what it means to be fundraising for the arts as a person of color.”
Friday 1 March at 11:30 a.m. PST (San Francisco) / 1:30 p.m. CST (Chicago) / 2:30 p.m. EST (New York) / 7:30 p.m. UTC +0 (London).

ONE MORE DAY 2/6 at Mabou Mines, combine your night with THREE RITES: Liberty created by Edisa Weeks at 7PM followed by decolonizing my vagina at 8:30PM
decolonizing my vagina – is a ritual performance piece that explores the relationship to self love and self worth as seen through the experiences of a queer fat woman of color who has dated primarily white men. Weaving together music, poetry, and storytelling, these complex intersections of intimacies are brought to life.
THREE RITES: Liberty is part of a trilogy on Life, Liberty and Happiness. THREE RITES integrates live music, dance and two visual installations to examine how life, liberty and happiness are guaranteed and pursued in America; and how these rights manifest in the body.
