for colored girls who have considered suicide / when the rainbow is enuf


Black girl magic is reborn on Broadway in this fearlessly new, fiercely now reinvention of Ntozake Shange’s iconic masterpiece for colored girls who have considered suicide / when the rainbow is enough.

In this celebration of the power of Black womanhood, seven women share their stories and find strength in each other’s humor and passion through a fusion of poetry, dance, music, and song that explodes off the stage and resonates with all.

“A landmark of American theater” (The New York Times), Ntozake Shange’s for colored girls who have considered suicide / when the rainbow is enough blazed a trail for generations to come. Now, it returns to Broadway for the first time, reinvented, directed, and choreographed by “a true superstar of theater and dance” (NPR), Tony Award® nominee Camille A. Brown (Once On This Island, Choir Boy, Fire Shut Up in My Bones - Metropolitan Opera Fall 2021).
