The Colored Museum- George C Wolfe
21 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I absolutely LOVED this play. Though I haven't seen this version, my high school performed it this year.

Gauging from the audience's reaction, and my own, even for those not of African-American descent George Wolfe's work is a must read/must see for all! I cannot sum up my feelings about this show in any better way than with these words from our show's director "The show's in your face take on these subjects may be uncomfortable at times, and I think that's good. It is because of these uncomfortable feelings that we force ourselves to step back and question where these stereotypes came from and even more importantly why they still exist"
