Tales of growing up black & gay

The Iron Crow Theatre’s much heralded production of Robert O’Hara’s BootyCandy will spice up the Baltimore theatre scene this June. Running from June 9th to 18th, BootyCandy is O’Hara’s semi-biographical subversive comedy which tells the story of Sutter, who is on an outrageous odyssey through his childhood home, his church, dive bars, motel rooms, and even nursing homes. O’Hara weaves together scenes, sermons, sketches, and daring meta-theatrics to create a kaleidoscope that interconnects to portray growing up gay and black.

F. Scott Black, the beloved Baltimore theatre icon, recently returned to the Baltimore theatre scene as director of the Cockpit in Court’s June performances of Arsenic & Old Lace. To commemorate Black’s return, the CCBC Essex theatre is to be renamed in his honor as the F. Scott Black Theatre.

Baltimore’s Collaborative Theatre will stage the Manhattan Project’s version of Alice in Wonderland from June 9th to 25th at the Fells Point Corner Theatre. For the final show of the Collaborative Theatre Company’s second season, the performance will delve into a different version of the Lewis Carroll children’s story. Carroll’s masterwork has been daringly reimagined into a raw and profound journey though the human condition.

In 1990, documentary filmmaker Jennie Livingston premiered her film uncovering the wild and unique “Ball Scene” that predominated N.Y.C. Harlem queer culture in the 1980s. Long before Ru Paul became the drag queen zeitgeist, drag royalty – Pepper LaBeija, Angie Xtravaganza, Willi Ninja, and Dorian Corey were tearing up Harlem in a celebration of gender fluidity and protest.
