"Tar Baby" is the newest one-woman show written and performed by Desiree Burch. It's currently running off-Broadway at the DR2 through January 19th.
Here's the blurb:
Celebrated Huffington Post and NY Magazine comedian Desiree Burch presents Tar Baby - the tale of America’s black & white love affair from shotgun wedding to “post-racial” relationship. Speaking to a growing majority of minority experiences in America, Tar Baby effortlessly weaves games, audiences, laughter and insight in an interactive carnival of Race & Capitalism - where no one's a winner, but everyone's still playing!
I haven't seen this version yet, but I saw an earlier production and it was AMAZING. I have no doubt that Desiree has continued to grow and improve the piece.
I'll be there on Monday the 14th if you want to be my coincidental date. I am SO EXCITED for Desiree's success.
