Boomerang will present a workshop of the new musical by Tracey Conyer Lee and Nehemiah Luckett.
It's a musical within a musical and it's 1981. A frustrated black theatremaker receives the age-old ultimatum from his pregnant wife: give up his dream and become a more stable provider for their growing family. On a quest to prove he can do both, he happens upon a white career criminal trying to win back his love interest, which seems like a story worthy to change the landscape of American theatre. With the criminal muses opening doors the artist couldn't on his own, the unlikely trio lie, cheat and steal their way to living their most authentic lives—and to write a big ole Broadway musical called “Love Thief”.
Funding for the Arts is going to take a
MASSIVE hit in 2021, as we continue to
recover from the pandemic, the economic
challenges, and the educational
challenges hindering the country right
We will need everyone's support as we
keep putting artists to work telling
stories that reflect the dreams of our
community and our nation.
We haven't been able to gather together as we normally would, but we've continued to be a resource for artists.
One way we've tried to be of service is to highlight the process creative artists go through when working, and how that might be altered right now due to isolation.
Check out these informal chats on our YouTube channel, and let us know if there's anyone (playwrights, directors, stage managers) you'd like to hear from .
