Oh my goodness. I can only assume that you all are checking in on my blog, waiting for me to finish my cupcakes. And I will! I promise. It's just that I've been a little bit busy working on a new Off-Broadway musical. Want to check it out? It's really good.
Shafrika the White Girl
By Anika Larsen
Co-Conceived & Directed by April Nickell
With a name like Shafrika, it's gotta be a blonde girl from Cambridge,
Massachusetts, right? In Jaradoa Theater’s joyous new musical,
discover how Anika Larsen's unique and movingly quirky exploration of
race, identity and family uncovers the truth about growing up with Black,
White, Asian, Latino, and Native American brothers and sisters.
10 kids. 5 races. One family. Go.
