I'll be playing as Beau Willie Brown in the U.S. Premiere at The Flea Theater. Previews begin Thursday February 18. Tickets are currently being sold for $15. We have just completed week two of rehearsals and I can honestly say you won't want to miss it! Kristiana Colón has written a powerful work of art that demands your complete attention - even in fragmented memories. Already there is so much I have learned and am indescribably appreciative to star the New Year off with such a powerful team.
Synopsis: At the tail end of the Vietnam War veteran Beau Willie Brown attempts to return to the family and life he left behind. Inspired by and including extracts from For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When The Rainbow Is Enuf by Ntozake Shange, but i cd only whisper moves through time and space fusing the physical and the poetic to explore the affects of trauma, society, and self.
“but i cd only whisper is a beautifully sophisticated play, which combines monologues, fantasies and flashbacks to tell the story of black Vietnam vet Beau Willie Brown…As Beau opens up, a murky picture emerges of a man at battle with himself and society.” – Time Out London Review
"a strong, dark and challenging new play" - The Multicultural Politic
