John Golden Theatre
Witness this richly theatrical mosaic that celebrates the vibrant and complex lives of Black men in America.
“A JAW-DROPPING, THOUGHT-PROVOKING, INCREDIBLY REAL PRODUCTION THAT IS NOT TO BE MISSED.”
— Broadway World
A new American play for a new Broadway.
As the sun rises on a single day in the pulsing heart of Brooklyn, seven Black men are about to discover the extraordinary – together. By Keenan Scott II, one of today’s boldest new voices, Thoughts of a Colored Man blends spoken word, slam poetry, rhythm, and humor into a daringly universal new play. Welcome to the vibrant inner life of being Black, proud, and thriving in the 21st century. This richly theatrical mosaic shines brilliant light onto these men, a tight-knit brotherhood, revealing their most triumphant selves. Their vibrant and vulnerable experiences and feelings reverberate far beyond the barbershops and basketball courts of their community. They reveal the deeply human hopes, joys, sorrows, fears, and dreams of all men, all people.
