*Two classic African American plays – Late Bus To Mecca and Every Goodbye Ain’t Gone are returning to the stage in a new and unique off-Broadway production at The Studio Theatre (410 West 42nd Street) in New York’s Theatre District.
With a limited run from Friday, March 28 through Sunday, April 6 2014, Late Bus To Mecca and Every Goodbye Ain’t Gone are being produced by Lauren M. Smith and Michael Sonnenberg, and directed by Marishka S. Phillips.
The new production of these one-act plays highlights the African American experience and examines love, culture, and identity. “Both stories focus on finding and protecting love. Often with modern relationships, connections are thrown away for the most trivial reasons, and these stories are a reminder that love is one of our greatest sources of support and strength, and consequently should be nurtured instead of abandoned,” says director Phillips, who has a successful career in theatre as a Broadway actress, international performer and acting coach.
Each play showcases intense story lines and unforgettable characters grappling with the historical movements of their eras while dealing with personal matters of the heart.
With the combination of two plays in one, the production is the first of its kind, and stars a stellar company of performers who revive roles originally performed by Denzel Washington and S. Epatha Merkerson. The casts include newcomers Dana Ferguson, Donald Calliste, Chineze Enekwechie and Lauren M. Smith.
Tickets are one sale now for $33.75, and can be purchased at the theatre box office or online at Telecharge: http://bit.ly/1hJAgR8
