I am so excited to announce that I have been cast in the world premiere of Donja R. Love’s new play titled, One in Two directed by Stevie Walker-Webb (Ain’t No Mo’). I have been a fan of Mr. Love’s work since I saw Sugar in Our Wounds at Manhattan Theater Club last year and then Fireflies at the Atlantic Theatre Club. I truly think he is one of the most gifted writers of our time, particularly when it comes to telling stories about queer people of color. This story falls in line with that but looks more specifically at young gay black men and the plight of the HIV epidemic that is still occurring.
I will be starring in the play alongside Leland Fowler (Novenas for a Lost Hospital) and Edward Mawere (Bootycandy). This will be the most challenging play that I have ever taken on as we all be playing all of the roles and our roles are chosen by the audience every night. So it is very likely that if you were to come see me on 2 show day, it is highly possible that you will see me playing a different role in the matinee to the evening performance. The play will be presented at the Alice Griffin Jewel Box Theatre inside the Pershing Square Signature Center on 42nd St. Our First preview begins on November 19th, with an official opening set for December 10th!
