Passionate Performance Art

“Little Girl Blue” Returns! March 21st & 22nd

Following my passion for telling stories led me to write and produce my one-woman show, “Little Girl Blue.” It will be in Philadelphia March 21st & 22nd. “Little Girl Blue” is a montage of monologues and spoken-word poetry set to music composed and performed by the awesome bassist Warren Oree. Multi-media segments heighten the sensory impulses of this searing saga of the 17 characters I portray.

“Little Girl Blue” is not for sissies. It’s hardcore truth, in your face and not always pretty. This work-in-progress explores themes of sexual abuse, domestic violence, female sexuality and self-esteem. It deals with African American social consciousness and empowerment. It deals with Black love, relationships, family secrets and the unbreakable bonds that characterize the strength and resilience of the African American people. Even though there is a lot of heavy stuff going on in this piece, there are lighthearted, humorous moments intertwined with these raw, intense tales. “Little Girl Blue” reveals decades of pain, pathos and desperation endured until she reconciles her past and emerges victorious and magnificently transformed. Recommended for mature audiences.

Please come out and support this self-produced effort that features an African Marketplace before and after each show:
