DON'T BOTHER ME, I CAN'T COPE!
"THEY KEEP COMING!"
Yesterday, was opening night of Don't Bother Me I Can't Cope, running July 25–28 at City Center as the final production of the 2018 Encores! Off-Center season.
I feel beyond blessed to share the stage with these incredible artists! #MickiGrant & #VinnetteCarroll shared Don't Bother Me I Can't Cope with the world in 1971! The piece may have premiered 47 years ago, but today's audiences still need to hear what it has to say.
"I was just writing about my community about what I saw on the news and on the streets and in the church,” Ms. Grant recalled. “And Vinnette Carroll said — no, she demanded — ‘People need to hear this."
#TonyAward winner #SavionGlover put his mark on the historic piece as director and choreographer the production of the 1971 musical. Thank you Savion and his amazing team Marshall Davis jr. & Monique Smith for continuing the legacy! ✊🏾✊🏾🔥
