About This Show

Theater Alliance presents the East Coast premiere of Toni Morrison’s The Bluest Eye, adapted by Lydia Diamond and directed by David Muse.

The Bluest Eye follows the story of Pecola Breedlove, who wants nothing more than to be loved by her family and schoolmates. Blaming her dark skin for her nothingness, she prays for blue eyes, sure that they will have the power to change her world.

The adaptation of Morrison’s novel was commissioned by Chicago’s Steppenwolf Theatre and received its world premiere in 2005. Steppenwolf’s production will be opening off-Broadway in the fall of 2006. Both Ms. Morrison and Ms. Diamond decided they wanted at least one other production of the play before taking it to New York. Theater Alliance is the first company to whom they gave permission to produce the play before its premiere in New York.
