Blacksplanation: The Hattiloo Theatre assembles an African American Theater exhibit

Posted By on Tue, Jun 15, 2010 at 12:16 AM

Ekundayo Bandele, the Hattiloo Theatre's Founding director, has turned his fledgling playhouse into a disorienting maze crammed with information about the African-American theater experience. The Black Theatre Museum shows the progression of black-themed entertainments from 19th Century "coon shows" to the Pulitzer Prize winning prose of Suzan-Lori Parks.

The Museum is open Tuesday - Saturday 10a.m. - 3p.m., June 15th - July 10th. Tickets are $8/adults, $6/children
