An Obie-winning autobiographical "smartly sweet" musical about a woman named Bubbly learning to embrace her color as she pursues a dream of becoming the greatest dancing star in the world. Directed by Ryan Haase. A co-production with StillPointe Theater Initiative.
What's a black girl from sunny Southern California to do? White people are blowing up black girls in Birmingham churches. Black people are shouting "Black is beautiful" while straightening their hair and coveting light skin. Viveca Stanton's answer: Slap on a bubbly smile and be as white as you can be! In a humorous and pointed coming-of-age story spanning the sixties through the nineties, Viveca blithely sails through the confusing worlds of racism, sexism and Broadway showbiz until she's forced to face the devastating effect self-denial has had on her life.
