B2: Hotlist! #60

“SEED” A New Play by Radha Blank

Directed by Niegel Smith

Presented by  Classical Theater of Harlem  and  Hip-Hop Theater Festival

Burnt-out social worker Anne Colleen Simpson decides to leave the field on a high note, with a book detailing her career, but when Chee-Chee, a gifted twelve-year-old from the ‘projects’ collides into her life, she’s forced to confront his young mother and the shadows of her past. Anne and Chee-Chee develop an unlikely friendship that leads to an explosive encounter threatening both their futures.

Infused with the vibrant rhythm and verse of Hip-Hop culture, Seed weaves through the fault lines of a gentrified Harlem, begging the question: How far are you willing to go to protect the future of a community and its children? To view a clip about the play, go to: http://www.seedtheplay.com/about/

I’ve had the pleasure of working with this next Artist on multiple occassions over the years and his talent never ceases to amaze me.  He is a gifted, Actor, Dancer, Singer, Writer, Comedian, Orator and the list goes on and on.  So it doesn’t surprise me that he has gone on to pen a hilarious yet poignant piece/show “Picture Incomplete”.  I’ve seen it live and it is really something special.  So when Trent asked me to come on board in support well, there was no hesitation.  If you love to laugh,  love good storytelling, love good singing then here is where you want to be on Sunday, Oct. 2nd, 2011 as B2: Productions & Black 2: Broadway Sponsor Trent Armond Kendall in “Picture Incomplete”.  Make your reservations now.
