“Stereotypes are exposed and exploded in eleven exhibits that satirize how the world sees and interprets ‘otherness.’ The Colored Museum is an experimental play that straddles various versions of reality while navigating what it means to be Black in America. In rebutting understandings of culture that are monolithic or existent within vacuums, this play makes room for joy, laughter, and a piercing pain . It tells the story of a community fighting to come to terms with both history and present while seeking definitions of freedom.”
