About The Colored Museum

Climb aboard for a madcap and stinging journey through 11 hilarious looks at African-American culture — from the depths of the Celebrity Slaveship to the spinning heights of Harlem. Tony Award winner George C. Wolfe's landmark comedy has electrified, discomforted, and delighted audiences of all colors, skewering stereotypes and redefining what it means to be black in contemporary America.

"George Wolfe's skethces of black American life are both startling and hilarious. The play was ahead of its time in 1987 and is now ripe for a major revival. I'm thrilled that the incredible Billy Porter, fresh from his Tony Award-winning performance in Kinky Boots on Broadway, will direct. Bringing these two brilliant American theatre artists together is a dream."— Peter DuBois
"The Colored Museum came into my life at a very formative time. I was a teenager longing for more than just one type of 'Black' representation in the creative storytelling landscape. George Wolfe's unique and irreverent voice of inclusion ignited the fire of possibility inside of me and set me on a creative journey that included stretching myself beyond what, up until then, I thought was possible for a little black gay boy from the ghetto. I am forever grateful."— Billy Porter
