B-Boy Blues: The Play, directed by Stanley Bennett Clay, will be performed on Wednesday night at 7 p.m. at Howard University’s Ira Aldridge Theater (2455 6 St., N.W.) as part of the D.C. Black Theatre Festival.
The show is adapted from the best-selling novel of the same name by James Earl Hardy and features a gay romantic storyline. Hardy is excited that it will be shown at Howard, given the university’s tense history with LGBT students and faculty.
The debut performance of B-Boy Blues: The Play last March at the Downtown Urban Theater in New York was a sold-out success. Admission for the D.C. show is $15. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit dcblacktheatrefestival.com.
