Marie and Rosetta

June 16, 2020 - July 12, 2020

52 Weeks of Women

Kenny Leon’s True Colors Theatre Company is proud to present “52 Weeks of Women,” which will complement True Colors’ 17th season: She Griots. In his first year as Artistic Director at True Colors, Jamil Jude curated this season to uplift Black women, who are among the most historically underrepresented faces in regional theatre, both on and off the stage.

With this year-long celebration, we will recognize a different “shero” on our website and on social media, sharing their stories and honoring their impact in the community.  Each Wednesday, a new honoree will be featured.
