Thoughts of a Colored Man

Thoughts of a Colored Man

The Broadway premiere of Thoughts of a Color Man will open on Broadway in the 2021/2022 season at the Golden Theatre. Previews begin on October 1, ahead of an opening night on Halloween, October 31.

Over the course of a single day in the pulsing heart of Brooklyn, the hopes, sorrows, fears, and joys of seven men reverberate far beyond the barbershops and basketball courts of their community. Vulnerable and vibrant, raw and alive — these are the Thoughts of a Color Man

A powerful theatrical testament by Keenan Scott II, Thoughts of a Color Man weaves spoken word, slam poetry, and rhythm into a mosaic of the inner lives of Black men and heralds the arrival of an essential new voice to the American theater.
