Patrons of Pride: BLKS at MCC Theater
MCC Theater, New York, 511 W 52nd St, 10019, United States
We're inviting you to join us for a Patrons of Pride off-Broadway night at BLKS, a new play by Aziza Barnes, directed by Robert O'Hara!
When shit goes down, your girls show up. As sharply funny as it is poignant, BLKS introduces us to Octavia (PAIGE GILBERT / MCC’s SCHOOL GIRLS), Imani (ALFIE FULLER / IS GOD IS ), and June (ANTOINETTE CROWE-LEGACY / IF PRETTY HURTS, UGLY MUST BE A MUFHUCKA)—three twenty somethings in New York City hunting for intimacy and purpose in a city that doesn’t seem to care. They drink a lot. They smoke a lot. They try to have sex. A lot.
When they need each other the most, the women rally to “resurrect their fly” in a day full of humorous and painful attempts to be heard through the noise that surrounds them. ROBERT O’HARA (BOOTY CANDY, MANKIND) directs. Poet AZIZA BARNES makes their playwriting debut which signifies the arrival of a wholly original voice.
Join us on Friday, May 24 at 8 p.m. After the show, we are keeping the party going with a free drink and music! Each audience member will receive ONE voucher in their playbills for a complimentary beer/wine/soda only. Valid ID required for alcoholic beverages. Limited to audiences who attended the performance that evening.
BLKS is located at MCC Theatre, 511 West 52nd Street.
We've been offered a block of discounted tickets and we're excited to pass them to you. Tickets are available for $55. A portion of revenue from each ticket sold is donated back to NYC Pride. We will have grouped tickets to enjoy the show together!
