Venus of Hottentot at Signature Theatre

Based on a true story about Sara Baartman, an African Woman who was enslaved because of her beautiful booty, Venus of Hottentot wowed several small groups of foster children who had never been to the theatre!

Powerful Woman

Susan Lori Parks, a brilliant African American Female writer, chose to focus on a strong figure in history to illuminate in her play off-broadway.  Our kids felt empowered at the end after experiencing all of her trials and tribulations in living technicolor!

Amazing Production!

As the curtain went down in that moment just before the applause starts, the 16 year old sitting next to me said in a soft voice “w o w !”  That kind of reaction makes all our slow-going hard work worthwhile.
