Our Next Show:
The Clothesline Muse
Starring Jazz Vocalist and Actress Nnenna Freelon
The Clothesline Muse is a stunning theatrical production with original, emotive dance, music, and art. It will transport you to a different world, where the onerous yet honorable task of hand washing clothes is transformed into beautiful imagery, dance and song.
The multigenerational story examines the fragile relationships between women. It highlights the history of the main character, Grandma Blu (Nnenna Freelon), a laundress, and her granddaughter, Mary Mack (portrayed by Tyanna West), a budding screenwriter focused on the future. The play encourages discussion between grandparents-parents-children about “what happened at the clothesline.”
