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.

Reviews

"Camille A. Brown’s revival of Ntozake Shange’s 1976 Broadway landmark brings exuberant life to a play that celebrates Black women’s solidarity in the face of pain."

The New York Times

"It’s taken more than 45 years for Ntozake Shange’s theatrical evening of narrative and lyrical poetry, dance, and song to return to Broadway’s Booth Theater.."
