Maya Angelou said during an interview, “We have some impulse to explain who we are… There’s something, which impels us to show our inner-souls.” Hattiloo presents plays that fulfill this human need by revealing the ‘inner-soul’ of the Black community. Our plays are for some people a means of self-examination; and for others they are eye-openers.
This season, we open with In the Heights, a musical that presents the ‘inner-soul’ of Caribbean immigrants and their children. The Brother/Sister Plays will show us the ‘inner soul’ a black community and its African origins. Free Man of Color teaches us about the ‘inner-soul’ of the abolitionist movement. Radio Golf and my own play If Scrooge was a Brother will illustrate the ‘inner-soul’ of successful Blacks. And we’ll celebrate the 40th anniversary of The Wiz, which epitomizes the ‘inner-soul’ of the creative Black community.
Increase your enjoyment and appreciation of each play by participating in these FREE events that each underline the theme of their respective play.
