Robsham Hosts Production of For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow is Enuf

Blog For Colored Girls

Thursday March 20 – Sunday March 23

Thurs – Sat 7:30 p.m.; Sun 2:00 p.m. Robsham Theater

Written by Ntozake Shange, the play first opened on Broadway in 1976 and has since been adapted to television, film, and book form. A combination of poetry, song, and a variety of dance styles, the show stars seven dazzling African American women dressed in different colors performing a series of poems. This group of fierce women hail from seven different cities and come together to express the struggles and obstacles they have faced and overcome, finding their rainbows through love, friendships, pain, suffering, and music.

The Black Box theater in Robsham is cozy, dim, and perfect for the interactive nature of the performance. Multiple small tables for audience members are located in the middle of the stage, with more seating situated in front and to the side. All seven actresses performed the characters effortlessly, each one a little different, but all together powerful in their interactions.

If you haven’t already picked up your ticket, you’re going to have to scalp someone else’s because all performances are sold out! Great job to the ladies of the Rainbow and all of the directors, performers, and crew that put this show together. It’s must see!
