THAT WORD – Theatrical Reading Production – 6/23/15 Update

WE DID IT!!!!! 

THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH!!!! 

On Sunday, June 21, 2015 at 6:00 p.m., we performed a Staged Reading of That Word in the DC Black Theatre Festival. 

The Staged Reading of the epic poem, That Word received a standing ovation and rave reviews from a crowded audience. 

I was very pleased with the performance, and I autographed books after the performance. 

I have received inquiries about when the next That Word performance will be held. I do not know. 
I am too exhausted to think about it. But I will. 

Please check my website calendar about future performances. 


For contributors who were able to attend the performance, it was great to see you. I trust you saw your name in the program, unless you requested to be anonymous. 

The photographer Lawrence A. Randall has posted great photos from the performance on his Face Book page. I posted those photos on my Face Book page as well. 

There are some black and white photos in the program. I do not know how to post them to this site. Please forgive my technology challenges.
