PERFORMANCE, WORKSHOPS & SLAM
FOR GAY, LESBIAN, BISEXUAL & TRANSGENDER YOUTH
JOIN us for a weeklong residency with nationally recognized Jamaican lesbian spoken word poet STACEYANN CHIN that includes workshops and an open mic for GLBT youth. Chin’s poetry is a bracing, no-holds-barred yet tender examination of her own life and the world around her that locates itself at the complex intersection of sexual, gender and racial identities. She co-wrote and performed in the Tony Award-nominated Russell Simmons Def Poetry Jam and presented her own one-woman shows Off-Broadway.

Today, Roberta Smith published a harsh review of the show up at the Bronx Museum entitled, ‘How Soon is Now?’ I won’t copy the review here, but I will post some of the harsh highlights (ouch!). Here is one work, by Jeanne Verdoux called “Living Room” that she did actually think was worthy of being called “art.” I haven’t seen the show in person so I can’t really give you my own take on it.
Anyhow, on with the harsh highlights:

“too much political theater gets locked into preaching to the converted. But it doesn’t have to. As long as you use the central tool of empathy. That’s how you make good theater, and theater for people who may not know about the things you’re dealing with.” – Jessica Blank
“What so much of the theater of politics is missing is the artistic part.” -April Yvette Thompson
It’s great that a play like this has been written and is now on stage. Now, when is it coming to Miami?
