  • Overview

    Kirsten Childs’ delightful, provocative, and incredibly moving 2000 musical is about a young African-American dancer who finds her way from West Coast suburbia to Broadway, all while navigating the politics of race and gender in an attempt to uncover her own identity. With a deceptively fun and catchy score and a wickedly satirical take on the lives of Broadway dancers, The Bubbly Black Girl Sheds Her Chameleon Skin deserves to be seen again.



    The Bubbly Black Girl Sheds Her Chameleon Skin
    is part of the 2017 Encores! Off-Center season, which also includes Assassins and Really Rosie. On our blog, artistic director Michael Friedman explains why these musicals matter.
