About this show

Platanos and Collard Greens is a thought-provoking romantic comedy that addresses stereotypes, prejudices, and urban myths, all within the context of humor and satire. Much like a modern day West Side Story, the play tells the story of two college students: Freeman, an African-American man, and Angelita, a Latina woman, both forced to confront cultural and racial barriers while defending their romantic bond from the biases held by family and friends. In December 2008, Platanos and Collard Greens was honored with a special award for Excellence in Black Theater by AUDELCO, often described as the Black Tony Award.
