The Godfather of Black Theater

Contributed by Guest Blogger of the Week, Christopher Burris.

Today, I officially proclaim Woodie King Jr. the Godfather of Black Theater and I advise you all to attend a party in his honor. Though not as recognized outside of the Black theater community as many think he should be, Mr. King has provided an artistic home for hundreds of actors over the years, and has been influential in launching the careers of some of our most cherished and famous theater artists. The evening will begin with a wine and cheese reception followed by an intimate conversation with Mr. King about his personal and professional journey. Kamilah Forbes will moderate the conversation, with champagne and photos to follow. Godfather expects to see you all there...

Honoring Excellence in Black Theatre:  A Night with founder and Artistic Director of The New Federal Theatre, Woodie King Jr. Monday February 27, 2012 from 7:00pm until 8:30pm. ADMISSION $10
