WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Kirsten Childs's delightful, provocative, and incredibly moving 2000 musical is about a young African-American dancer named Viveca. She finds her way from West Coast suburbia to Broadway, all while navigating the politics of race and gender in an attempt to uncover her own identity. With a fun and catchy score as well as a wickedly satirical take on the lives of Broadway dancers, The Bubbly Black Girl Sheds Her Chameleon Skin deserves to be seen again.
