Keenan Scott II’s Thoughts of a Colored Man opened at Broadway’s John Golden Theatre on October 13 and now you can feel like you were there. Check out the photos below to see Dyllón Burnside, Bryan Terrell Clark, Da’Vinchi, Luke James, Forrest McClendon, Tristan “Mack” Wilds and Esau Pritchett take their opening night bows alongside the playwright and director Steve H. Broadnax III. Thoughts of a Colored Man takes place over the course of a single day in the pulsing heart of Brooklyn, where the hopes, sorrows, fears and joys of seven men reverberate far beyond the barbershops and basketball courts of their community. The play weaves spoken word, slam poetry and rhythm into a mosaic of the inner lives of Black men.
