On stage as originally intended, Zuhairah McGill brilliantly directs Ntozake Shange’s Tony Award nominated choreopoem on the welcoming and deserving stage of The ARC Theater. A landmark in American theatre, Ntozoke Shange’s "for colored girl who have considered suicide/when the rainbow is enuf" illuminates the tales of women in all the shades of life’s experiences. A powerful cast bears the passion, drama, comedy and pain that paint the visions, confessions and revelations of these women known only by the various colors of the rainbow. Though Shange at times reveals some ugly truths about abuse, relationships, and domestic violence, she does not allow the darkness to go unchallenged. Instead she gifts us through poetry and dance, reminding us that women bear a complicated love and invites you to transform, cross the rainbow and experience the light that exists on the other side!
