Recommended: "Tar Baby"

"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.

TAR BABY starring Desiree Burch

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!

Backstage just gave it a great review (click to read).

And here's a fun 30-second teaser.

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.
