The Bubbly Black Girl Sheds Her Chameleon Skin @ BTT

Bubbly Black Girl LogoA non-stop musical celebration of self-discovery is in store when Black Theatre Troupe presents The Bubbly Black Girl Sheds Her Chameleon Skin April 12 – 21, 2013, at the Black Theatre Troupe.  Lizz Reeves Fidler will be performing in the orchestra pit as a vocalist.

What’s a black girl from sunny Southern California to do? White people are blowing up black girls in Birmingham churches. Black people are shouting “Black is beautiful” while straightening their hair and coveting light skin. Viveca Stanton’s answer: Slap on a bubbly smile and be as white as you can be! In a humorous and pointed coming-of-age story spanning the sixties through the nineties, Viveca blithely sails through the confusing worlds of racism, sexism and Broadway showbiz until she’s forced to face the devastating effect self-denial has had on her life.

Loosely based on the life of playwright Kirsten Childs, Bubbly Black Girl follows budding dancer Viveca Stanton from a turbulent 1960’s Los Angeles to the 1990’s Broadway stage.
