Requiem for a Rainbow: “for colored girls” at Boston College

The Rock at BC just published my review of “for colored girls who have considered suicide/when the rainbow is enuf” at Boston College this past weekend. What a magnificent performance it was…

 

There exists no clear distinction between stage and audience at John Houchin’s production of Ntozake Shange’s for colored girls who have considered suicide/when the rainbow is enuf. With dim crimson lighting and the drawls of Ella Fitzgerald overhead, the scene alludes more to a New Orleans speakeasy than a black box theatre at Boston College. The audience members might feel they are being invited for a glass of wine at various café tables arranged across the space. What they will imbibe is a spirit of a different kind.
