Thoughts of a Colored Man to Play at the Golden Theatre

Thoughts of a Colored Man Headed to Broadway at the Golden Theatre

On Thursday, Thoughts of a Colored Man has announced it will play at the Golden Theatre. The new play by Keenan Scott II, directed by Steve H. Broadnax III, has not yet announced official dates for its Broadway bow.

A powerful theatrical testament by Keenan Scott II, Thoughts of a Color Man weaves spoken word, slam poetry, and rhythm into a mosaic of the inner lives of Black men and heralds the arrival of an essential new voice to the American theater.

Ahead of its Broadway debut, a new marquee has been installed at the Golden Theatre.

Thoughts of a Colored Man will mark the Broadway debuts of both Scott and Broadnax. Scott’s new play The Migration LP is in development at New York Stage & Film and Broadnax most recently directed Katori Hall’s new play The Hot Wing King at Signature Theatre.

The creative team for Thoughts of a Colored Man includes music by Te’La and Brother Kamau, set design by Tony Award-nominee Robert Brill, co-costume design by Tony Award nominee and Drama Desk Award-winner Toni-Leslie James and Devario D. Simmons, lighting design by Ryan O’Gara, projection design by Tony and Drama Desk Award nominee Sven Ortel, and sound design by Mikaal Sulaiman. Calleri, Jensen, & David serve as casting directors for the production.
