Black, White and Gray shows how past and present realities combine to illustrate the fact that racial struggles are not black or white, just human. This new musical brings the honesty of Norman Lear to the glorious 1940s Hollywood musical, with a contemporary score of rock and R & B. The concert reading is directed by Ilesa Duncan with musical direction by Jeffrey A. Bouthiette. Black, White and Gray features a book by Luther Goins, lyrics by Myrna Petlicki, and music by Craig Wilson; authors Petlicki and Wilson are members of Theatre Building Chicago's Musical Theatre Writers Workshop.
Later in the season, Black, White and Gray will be presented in a more realized studio presentation.
