TOTALLY IRREVERENT, FEROCIOUSLY FUNNY, BITINGLY DARK… No holds are barred… this fresh, very funny, satirical take on ‘blackness’ becomes the most politically incorrect view of racism to hit live theater this year… a double whammy for the audience: to laugh and to learn at the same time.” — Elaine Mura, Splash Magazines
