WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
This is David and Jamillah Lamb producers of Platanos Y Collard Greens, over the years fans have asked us to add a West Indian character to the play. Well we've gone way beyond that! Starting this Fall we are pleased to offer our hilarious, expanded spin on the untold story of Caribbean, African-American and Latino relations - Platanos, Collard Greens Y Callaloo.
Come see this hilarious tale of love, family drama and politics. You think Angelita's mom was hard on Freeman, wait till you see what happens the first time Pops met Freeman's Jamaican mother! If you think OK and Nilsa made you laugh before, now you will laugh till it hurts when they set out to become Soca's biggest stars! She still wants to know 'What's Wrong With The Chocolate" but will Malady fall under the love spell of a young Machel Montano wanna be?
Audiences fell in love with Platanos Y Collard Greens because it made them laugh out loud and believe in love. Now Platanos, Collard Greens Y Callaloo will make you laugh even harder and believe in love even more!Come stand up and cheer at the power of love.
