About This Show

Black No More, a new musical inspired by George S. Schuyler’s Afrofuturist novel set during the Harlem Renaissance, is the story of Max Disher (Brandon Victor Dixon), who’s eager to try the mysterious machine invented by Dr. Junius Crookman (Tariq Trotter) that guarantees to “solve the American race problem”—by turning Black people white. Through a fusion of music by two-time Grammy Award winner Tariq Trotter (Black Thought, the Roots), and choreography by two-time Tony Award winner Bill T. Jones (Spring Awakening and Fela!), with book by Academy Award winner John Ridley (12 Years a Slave), and directed by the New Group’s founding artistic director Scott Elliott, Black No More is one Black man’s journey colliding with truths of race and identity.
