Seek and Ye Shall Find - A Must See

Seek and Ye Shall Find is a two night only performance happening at The Prism Theatre, 920 E University Drive Tempe, AZ 85281. The performances are tonight and tomorrow night.

After learning the description of this performance, I feel like I must share this with everyone. Two important things to know. 1) It's free. 2) It's about being black and gay [my two favorite things in the world]. This production is a one man show written by and starring Sentell Harper. The description . . . "Armed with a Barista's Apron and microphone, Harper presents a series of coffee house tales about being Black and gay in a cream and sugar world."

My friend Bill saw the production tonight and this was his response to me . . .
Drop everything. I know you was suppose to have dinner with your moma on Friday (or whatever) but tell her you gotta cancel so you can go to this play. Sentel Harper is absolutely brilliant. The play is about several very different black gay men, played by Sentel, and each hates the other. The black gay characters, you know the Fem, the loud, the Down Low black gay men all hate the characteristics of other gay men because they represent what they hate about themselves. YOU MUST GO SEE IT.

I'm sold. I'll be there. Hopefully I'll see you there too.
