So yesterday while I flipping through my September issue of Essence magazine while working out, I came across a one-page article about India Aire starring in a revival of Ntozake Shange’s “For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow is Enuf.” I was so thrilled I damn near fell off the machine. I personally have not read the book, but I have heard how inspiriting it is, and what I have read from Ntozake I have loved. She is phenomenal. I think I am going to grab a copy of this book from amazon the next time I purchase a book. I have to keep an eye on this production because I absolutely have to see this. I really wanted to catch the all black revival of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof but I missed it, so if I miss this I will kill someone. I tried to google information, but couldn’t find any information dated after July 30. All the information said that India Aire’s debut will be postponed due to lack of funding.. I am praying that this comes to Broadway or off-Broadway because I need this in my life. For those who don’t know, “For Colored girls…” was First produced off-Broadway, the play soon moved onto Broadway at the Booth Theatre and won a number of awards, including the Obie Award, Outer Critics Award and the AUDELCO Award.
