"So the question is, why aren’t more African-Americans making theater outside the traditional text-based mode?"

I don't know what race Jeremy is, but I'm actually surprised that somebody even thought to ask that.

Thanks for this post. You're right about our theatre being segregated, of course. The problem is, we all think our theater is inclusive. We just rarely stop to look around and notice that there aren't any black people.

So, he missed the collective plays made of reenacting a slaveship journey? Yeah, it was done by a church, in Houston, but I heard about them, even though they didn't document on the Internet.

Are religion-based plays part of his review? Plays made by communities who aren't theatre students?

I always thought one of SLP's biggest early champions was Stan Wojowodski at Yale Rep. - producing premieres of The Death of the Last Black Man in the Whole Entire World and The America Play, two name two.
