ONE OF THE TOP TEN PLAYS OF 2014 – THE NEW YORK TIMES

Bootycandy is a shockingly funny and saucy spin on race, sex, and sexuality. Based on the author’s own experiences growing up black and gay, the play unfolds in a series of loosely linked vignettes that take no prisoners when confronting racial, sexual, and cultural stereotypes. With outrageous humor and real heart, O’Hara tests how we talk about our bodies at home, in church, and in the theatre.

Tickets from $25.
ROW K: ALL PERFORMANCES
ALL SEATS: PATRONS UNDER 25

 

PLEASE BE ADVISED: This play is called BOOTYCANDY, so they'll be talking about booty, and showing some booty. That means strong language, mature themes, and full nudity. You've been warned.
