Detroit ’67 at The National Black Theater in Harlem

By Mac Malikowski | April 3, 2013

Detroit ’67, the new play by award winning playwright Dominique Morriseau, runs until April 12th. You really should try and go. The show is as comical as it is dramatic and tickets are pretty inexpensive for such a professional community theater. The cast is incredibly funny and talented, effortlessly making optimum use of the shows single set (the way the story moves though, it feels more like there is half a dozen).

Detroit 67

Here’s the story:
It’s 1967 in Detroit. Motown music is getting the party started, and Chelle and her brother Lank are making ends meet by turning their basement into an after-hours joint. Always at odds, they fight over the future of the family trade. But when a mysterious white woman finds her way into their care and a string of raids increases police brutality around the city, the siblings become divided over much more than business. Suddenly, they find themselves caught in the middle of the ’67 riots.

Here’s the details:
The National Black Theatre
2033 Fifth Avenue at 125th Street, Harlem.
Performance take place Tuesday through Sunday at 7:30pm, with matinees on Saturday at 1 pm. Tickets are $25 for adults and just $20 for students and seniors and can be purchased online at The Classical Theater website or by calling 866-811-4111.
