“I have never been able to discover that there was anything disgraceful in being a colored man.
But I have often found it inconvenient…in America.”
Experience a unique event in Richmond history with the comedian W.C. Fields called “the funniest man I ever saw, and the saddest man I ever knew.” This original work of astonishing power based on the life of Bert Williams, beloved African American vaudeville star of stage and screen, will bring laughter, tears, and rejoicing in the joys and pains of our rich and fertile history. Starring Jeremy Morris as Bert Williams.
There will be two weekday matinees, open to the public and school groups, with discounted tickets available.
Produced with our partners at African American Repertory Theatre of Virginia
