I'm so excited about this production! For those of you unfamiliar, B-Boy Blues The Play is based on the B-Boy Blues novel by James Earl Hardy
. This book changed my life! It was the very first time I'd seen anything in print which truly reflected MY world. Everything I'd seen up to that point told me that who I was was wrong, an abomination and other 'fuckery.' As an African-American, same gender loving male, B-Boy Blues taught me not only was I not alone, but that despite what ignorance prevailed amongst the masses, my love was deep, emotional, passionate and beautiful! There was and IS nothing wrong or different about it. LOVE IS LOVE.
On August 2, 2014 the stage play adaptation of B-Boy hits the stage at Atlanta's Balzer Theater @ Herren's. I can't wait! There will be a Q&A session with the cast immediately following the show, hosted by yours truly! The buzz surrounding the show continues to heighten and I'm excited to for you to experience it. There are several ways you can support the production. Every dollar counts. Our stories only gain momentum when we SUPPORT them. All forms of encouragement are appreciated, but a dollar goes further than a like on Facebook....IJS.
Author James Earl Hardy and I have been "jood" (read the book for that definition) friends for decades. I remain proud of his groundbreaking accomplishments. His wisdom, laughter and joy continue to enrich my journey. B-Boy Blues the Play has something for everyone...FOR REAL.
Thank you all for your continued love and support. I can't wait to see you in August in ATL!!
