Primary Stages will present a talkback with guest Colman Domingo following the April 15 performance of Sharon Washington's Feeding the Dragon. A Tony- and Drama Desk-nominated actor, playwright, and director, Domingo currently stars on AMC's Fear the Walking Dead as Victor Strand and is currently represented on Broadway as the co-book writer of the new musical Summer: The Donna Summer Musical.
Feeding the Dragon, written and performed by Sharon Washington and presented in a coproduction with Hartford Stage, opened Tuesday, April 3, at the Cherry Lane Theatre. Directed by Maria Mileaf, the solo play is set to run through April 27.
In Feeding the Dragon, Sharon revisits her time growing up in an apartment on the top floor of the St. Agnes branch of the New York Public Library, where her father served as the building's custodian. Shrouded in family mystery, Sharon's story boldly examines how both the power of forgiveness and her lifelong love for the written word have helped her battle dragons of all forms.
Feeding the Dragon features scenic design by Tony Ferrieri, costume design by Toni-Leslie James, lighting design by Ann Wrightson, and sound design by Lindsay Jones.
