A Boy And His Soul

Wed 4 Sep 2013 – Sat 21 Sep 2013

by Colman Domingo

★★★★★ ‘An extraordinary charismatic performer’
The Daily Telegraph



Where do you get SOUL? From watching your parents sell the house you grew up in? From discovering the family secret about your crazy cousin? Or from the childhood records found in your parents’ basement? From Stevie, Aretha, Marvin, Chaka, Barry, Gladys…and Colman.

Propelled by the beat of classic soul, smooth R&B and disco, this is the soundtrack of a boy’s coming of age in ‘70’s and ’80’s Philadelphia.

Written and performed by Tony Award nominated actor Colman Domingo.

Creatives include Titas Halder (Director), Richard Kent (Designer), Oliver Fenwick (Lighting Designer), Mike Thacker (Sound Designer)

 Winner: Lucille Lortel Award (Best Solo Show), GLAAD Media Award (Best Play On or Off Broadway) and ITBA (Best Solo Show).
