Tune in to the epic and viciously funny new musical White Girl In Danger from Michael R. Jackson, the Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize-winning creator of A Strange Loop (2022 Tony Award Winner for Best Musical). It’s a fever dream mashup of classic daytime and primetime soap operas, Lifetime movies, and red-hot melodrama.
The citizens of the soap opera town Allwhite face high-stakes drama and intrigue all the days of their lives. But Keesha Gibbs and the other Blackgrounds have been relegated to backburner stories of slavery and police violence for all of theirs. Keesha is determined to step out of the Blackground and into the center of Allwhite’s juiciest stories. Can Keesha handle the Allwhite attention—especially from the Allwhite Killer on the loose? What role do the other Blackgrounds play in Keesha’s Allwhite schemes? And just whose story is this anyway? Find out at White Girl In Danger.
White Girl In Danger was originally developed by Vineyard Theatre as part of a multi-year residency for Michael R. Jackson. Season subscriptions are currently available for both theatre companies at VineyardTheatre.org and 2ST.com.
