“American Moor” Ticket Giveaway

2 min read

We are giving away two pairs of tickets to American Moor starring Keith Hamilton Cobb for the weekend of July 18th! Coming to the Anacostia Playhouse from July 17 to August 16, 2015

To enter this giveaway, you must answer the following question in two (2) paragraphs or less. This contest is different from the norm because of the topic involved. There are no right or wrong answers.

  • How can we as a nation remove the color lines in the arts?

Send your answer, in an email, by JULY 14, 2015 @ 5:00 PM with your NAME, LOCATION & the ANSWER to therogersrevue@gmail.com – SUBJECT: AMERICAN MOOR for your chance to win the prize in our random drawing!

American Moor is funny, touching, and greatly entertaining while simultaneously asking important, complex and at times uncomfortable questions: Our national theater community prides itself on progressiveness and open expression. But are those the facts? Or is there actually a patronizing quality to our approach that we can see reflected in the play, Othello and in the culture at large? Beyond just the audition process, is there a racism that exists in our contemporary theater? And has it become a microcosm of progressive/liberal society that believes it has knowledge of the black experience when it bothers to explore it at all?

American Moor is nothing if not authentic, wholly unapologetic in its focus on the denial inherent in our cultural dialogue on race, and unwavering in its hope for change and forward progress. Tickets are $25 general admission, $20 for East of the River residents, seniors and students
