New Play Details Secret Relationship Between Two Young Stars
Long-hidden scandals emerge, as the budding relationship between a R&B teen heartthrob and an up-and-coming rapper is threatened by secrets from their respective pasts, in “Damage Control” by Alan Sharpe.
Sunday, May 29, 2011, African-American Collective Theater (ACT) returns, with its 13th consecutive showcase of BLGBT theater in observance of DC Black Pride Weekend.
Marty Pree and Justin Fair portray the two young celebrities whose affair is complicated by interference from a Hip-Hop music mogul, a domineering stage mother/manager and the closeted, gospel superstar pastor of a homophobic Atlanta mega-church. They head a cast that also features Jivon Lee Jackson, Sheila Cutchlow, Talmach White, Monte J. Wolfe and Reginald Richard.
The annual debut each spring of a new work-in-progress written and directed by ACT founder, Alan Sharpe, serves as a fundraiser for the production company’s various theater and film projects supporting its mission to “…showcase contemporary BLGBT life and culture, promote visibility and raise awareness of issues facing our community.”
This year’s performances, at 5:00 and 8 p.m., will once again be presented in the recently-renovated Warehouse Theater, where the new entrance is now located around the corner at 645 New York Ave., NW., within easy walking distance of the Gallery Place and Mt.Vernon Square/Convention Center METRO stations.
A limited number of advance tickets will be made available at $15. Remaining tickets for both performances go on sale at the theater box office beginning at 3 p.m. on the day of the show.
