for colored girls who have considered suicide/when the rainbow is enuf at Booth Theatre

Black girl magic is reborn. Ntozake Shange’s for colored girls who have considered suicide/ when the rainbow is enuf is the “landmark of American theater” (The New York Times) that blazed a trail for generations to come. Now, this celebration of the power of Black womanhood returns to Broadway for the first time, reinvented, directed, and choreographed by “a true superstar of theater and dance” (NPR), Tony Award nominee Camille A. Brown (Once On This Island, Choir Boy, FIRE SHUT UP IN MY BONES - Metropolitan Opera Fall 2021). And her vision is as fearlessly new as it is fiercely now.

Join the circle as seven women share their stories and find strength in each other’s humor and passion through a fusion of poetry, dance, music, and song that explodes off the stage and resonates with all. It’s time for joy. It’s time for sisterhood. It’s time for colored girls.

“A MASTERPIECE!
A TURNING-POINT FOR ART BY AND ABOUT BLACK WOMEN.”
