Director: Joel P. King
Westcoast Black Theatre Mainstage
June 6 - 16, 2018
Matinee: 2:00 pm Evening: 8:00 pm
This summer, Westcoast Black Theatre Troupe is pleased to present the touring production, Real Life, which was written and directed - and, for this run, will star - occasional WBTT artist Joel P. E. King. Real Life, a two-act "hip-hopera" with sizzling song and dance, has been described as Rent meets In the Heights; it's a transformational story that explores the attitudes of urban living. The main character, Ray, has a test of faith as he is forced to choose his morality over a sensationalized street nature that may lead to his demise.
