Thoughts of a Colored Man Moves Broadway Opening Date Forward

This new Broadway play will open sooner than expected! Thoughts of a Colored Man, the new Broadway play by Keenan Scott II and directed by Steve Broadnax III, will officially open on Wednesday, October 13th at Broadway’s Golden Theatre. The show was previously scheduled to open on Sunday, October 31.

Thoughts of a Colored Man began preview performances on October 1. The ensemble cast features Dyllón Burnside (FX’s Pose), Bryan Terrell Clark (Hamilton), Da’Vinchi (Showtime’s upcoming Black Mafia Family), Grammy Award nominee Luke James (Showtime’s The Chi), Tony Award nominee Forrest McClendon (The Scottsboro Boys), Grammy Award nominee Tristan “Mack” Wilds (HBO’s The Wire), and Esau Pritchett (Prodigal Son). The understudies for the production are Bjorn DuPaty and Garrett Turner.

As the sun rises on a single day in the pulsing heart of Brooklyn, seven Black men are about to discover the extraordinary – together. By Keenan Scott II, one of today’s boldest new voices, Thoughts of a Colored Man blends spoken word, slam poetry, rhythm, and humor into a daringly universal new play. Welcome to the vibrant inner life of being Black, proud, and thriving in the 21st century.

This richly theatrical mosaic shines brilliant light onto these men, a tight-knit brotherhood, revealing their most triumphant selves. Their vibrant and vulnerable experiences and feelings reverberate far beyond the barbershops and basketball courts of their community. They reveal the deeply human hopes, joys, sorrows, fears, and dreams of all men, all people.
