Black PRIDE Pre-Show Reception at 6:00 PM

Fat Ham at 7:00 PM

The Huntington @ The Calderwood Pavilion/BCA

527 Tremont St Boston 02116

Join us for the Blackout Boston performance of Fat Ham, the Pulitzer Prize-winning new play by James Ijames. Sweet and sensitive Juicy wants to make his own way as a queer Black man growing up in a Southern family until his father’s ghost turns up at a backyard barbecue and insists that Juicy avenge his murder. Ay, there’s the rub! This smart and sharp reinvention of Shakespeare’s masterpiece took Broadway by storm this past spring. Don’t miss the Huntington’s production this fall!

The evening will kick off with a Black Pride Drag Pre-show reception at 6:00 PM. Featured performers: Chanel the Angel & Arabella the Goddess! This is a Pay What You Wish event, but don’t forget to bring your dollar bills for our deserving queens!

Blackout Boston is a private evening for individuals’ descendant of Africa’s Global Diaspora – Black folk of all ethnicities. For questions regarding this event, please contact Community Engagement Manager Oz Pereira at:

Tickets to this performance are Pay What You Wish (average ticket price $70) with a minimum of $5!
