About the show

Poet Aziza Barnes makes their playwriting debut with this poignant and comic play about three twenty somethings in New York City hunting for intimacy and purpose in a city that doesn’t seem to care. More…

When shit goes down, your girls show up."BLKS" introduces us to Octavia, Imani, and June. They drink a lot. They smoke a lot. They try to have sex. A lot. When they need each other the most, the women rally to “resurrect their fly” in a day full of humorous and painful attempts to be heard through the noise that surrounds them.

Broadway & Me

“An African-American riff on the TV shows ‘Girls’ and ‘Sex and the City’...O’Hara paints with broad strokes that underscore how potty-mouthed and raunchy the women are. And that undermines what Barnes is trying to say about the extra burdens so many young black women bear...O’Hara hits so hard on the humor that the challenges the women face get overshadowed and the intended epiphanies fall flat.” Full Review

Bad comedy and no other redeeming features. a sit com with no character development.

See it if Maybe adolescents would enjoy the show.

Don't see it if you expect a show directed by Robert O'Hara to be meaningfully blasphemous.

Avoid if possible; makes memories of "moosehead murders" seem fun by comparison, Excruciating

See it if you are twelve years old and dying of boredom

Don't see it if can't see why anyone would want to see this, but there was laughter in the audience though applause was brief.

During previews
Banal, Disappointing

See it if you might like if you are in your twenties and are amused by explicit sexual actions on stage

Don't see it if if you are uncomfortable with raw visual sexual live actions, and inappropriate for anyone under eighteen
