See it if If you do not care about a well written play. This show misses the mark.

See it if you'd like to see stand-up comedy used to express what being a black man in the US has been like for the past half century.

Don't see it if you're looking for a fully formed play. Read more

For a previous production

“Directed by Sean San Jose...Donald Lacy holds the audience in rapt attention. He makes the audience chuckle when he recants memories of his grandmother...Lacy tells his tale in a mirthful way but yet is deeply serious. He does not offend but he does not hold back either...’ColorStruck’ is a play that strikes at the heart of a 'racist America' and its oppression of people of color. Its truth should not be ignored, so please go see it.”
