Endorsed by The New York Times as “tough to resist”, the production will kick off the tour headlining Bermuda’s Festival of Performing Arts (February 5-7) followed by a presentation at DC’s Smithsonian Museum (February 9), Baltimore's Morgan State University (February 21), Cleveland’s Conway Theater (March 8) and more.
The production stars a stellar company of performers aptly named The Black Gents, an all-male ensemble driven to resurrect, redefine, and restore positive images of African-American men. Founded in 2007, the assembly of Actors, Writers and Directors aspire to change the paradigm and empower a generation through relevant storytelling and excellence in community service. The cast includes select dates with Screen Actor Lamman Rucker, Playwright/Director Layon Gray, Thom Scott II, Melvin Huffnagle, Delano Barbosa, Dave Roberts, Thaddeus Daniels, Craig Colsanti, Ananias Dixon.
The narrative depicts the lives of six men who struggle through the Jim Crow era and emerge with distinction as the first African-American pilots in the U.S. Army Air Forces.
With courageous brotherhood, their intelligence, patriotism and strength propel a dream into flight while fighting both military and social wars. The captivating all-male cast delivers a powerful performance that will entertain, inspire and inform as audiences discover the story that provoked a monumental change in American history.
“We are especially honored to join our tour cities and sponsors in celebrating the monumental contribution of the Tuskegee Airmen as well as partnering with initiatives that uplift, educate and empower our communities"
