Rhapsody in Black Presented by the Bardavon

Friday, 22 Feb 2019 19:30 – 21:30
Location: Ulster Performing Arts Center, 601 Broadway, Kingston, NY
Category: Performances & Theater

Written and performed by LeLand Gantt and developed at NYC’s Actors Studio with Estelle Parsons, Rhapsody in Black is a one-man show that explores LeLand’s personal journey to understanding and eventually transcending racism in America. We follow his spellbinding life story—from an underprivileged childhood in the ghettos of McKeesport, Pennsylvania to teenage experiments with crime and drugs to scholastic achievement and an acting career that land adult LeLand in situations where he is virtually the only African-American in the room. How he manages to cope with the various psychological effects of consistently being marked The Other is recounted in remarkable and exquisitely moving detail, guaranteed to leave lasting impressions.

This FREE event was made possible with support from Herzog’s/Kingston Plaza.

Friday, Feb. 22nd, Starts 7:30pm   |   FREE
