why watch for colored girls who have considered suicide/when the rainbow is enuf
Originally premiering in 1976 and nominated for a Tony Award, colored girls who have considered suicide/when the rainbow is enuf is a landmark piece of Black-women art that has touched hearts and minds ever since its first staging. Award-winning playwright Ntozake Shange touched on difficult and heartwrenching subjects like rape, abortion, loss, and abandonment through seven nameless characters known only by the color of their clothes. As the women share their stories, there is a collective sense of catharsis because a connection has been made and strength and solidarity found. The audience is also a part of their journey as they sing, dance, and exchange poetry. In Camille A.Brown's new reinvention, the underlying themes and essence still hold true. This is a piece of performance theatre for people of all races, genders, and generations.
