Reading of Schwarz Gemacht (Made Black) by Alexander Thomas
I got my first job in my new hometown, Jersey City (just over the river from NYC) - a reading of the gorgeous Schwarz Gemacht by Alexander Thomas, directed by Olga Levina. The fantastic cast included John Maurice Harris, Madalyn Pedone, Louise Heller, Michael Leigh Cook, and Chad Goodridge. The play was developed from Thomas's research into the lives of mixed-race Black German citizens during the 1930s, and had its premiere at the English Theatre Berlin in 2014.
The reading is part of the Identity festival at Jersey City Theater Center. More information about JCTC is available here.
