INKED BABY

A new play by Christina Anderson

Featuring

Michael Genet • Damon Gupton

LaChanze • Angela Lewis • Nana Mensah

Nikkole Salter • Tobias Truvillion

Directed by Kate Whoriskey

“Man, is it hard love or tough love I’m tryin’ to do?” Stuck for money and unable to conceive, Gloria (Tony Award®-winner LaChanze, The Color Purple) enlists the aid of her sister to make the child that she and her husband can’t.   As they uneasily await the baby’s arrival, a mysterious contamination spreads in their neighborhood. But consumed by their struggles, is anyone paying attention?  In this imaginative, other-worldly new drama, one family fights to find its place in a neglected neighborhood.

One of American Theater magazine’s 15 up-and-coming artists “whose work will be transforming America’s stages for decades to come,” Christina Anderson makes her off-Broadway debut with Inked Baby.

Kate Whoriskey previously directed Fabulation at Playwrights Horizons. Other recent NYC directing work includes The Piano Teacher, Oroonoko, and Ruined.

Show Description

A one-year New York Magazine subscription, a $9.97 value, will be included with your ticket purchase for this show! Feel free to click here for more information.

“Priceless…Terrific”

-NEW YORK TIMES

“Domingo gives a master class in losing himself in a character”

-THEATERMANIA

“He masters the mix of pain and dignity in a man who can be neither himself nor like everyone else”

-VARIETY
“Driven by plentiful soul recordings and impressively executed comic dance sequences, Colman Domingo’s solo autobiographical memoir of growing up in a Philadelphia row house is a sweet, funny and genuinely poignant portrait of a sometimes problematic but loving African American family.  This world premiere catches hold with Domingo’s versatile and beautifully limned performance.”
-San Francisco Chronicle
The OBIE Award winning actor brings his critically acclaimed autobiographical solo tour-de-force “A Boy and His Soul” that whips through coming of age in 1970’s West Philadelphia by way of an outstanding soul music record collection to Joe’s Pub.
Directed by Tony Kelly
Costume by Raul Aktanov
