11/25 Modern Black Psychology Explored in stageplay "Blackademics"­ 3p $15.75+$3

Blackademics at MPAACT


A visit to a strange cafe unearths the tensions between two female African American professors who've yet to decide if they're friends or competitors

Written by: Idris Goodwin Directed by: Marie Cisco and Shepsu Aakhu

Ann and Rachelle – "frienemies" and colleagues in academia set out for a night on the town. What begins as a celebratory meal morphs into a spirited discourse of their personal and political ideologies. The evening doesn't go quite as planned; their sly server, Georgia, provokes the competitive tensions between them, transforming the evening into something neither of them expected. Part hunger, part humor, Blackademics engages the audience in a lively dramatization of modern black psychology.

Click below to buy discounted tickets, $15.75+$3 fee. They are general admission so if you arrive early we can all sit together. Once you have purchased your ticket, please indicate PAID in the green "Change RSVP" box above the RSVP list on the right. This will help us keep track of who is really coming, without generating unnecessary emails. Thanks!

There will also be a dinner and discussion after at nearby "Simply It" 2269 N. Lincoln Ave, an exotic but casual Vietnamese restaurant offering a broad menu of noodle, stir-fry and grilled dishes, plus appetizers and salads, with most entrees under $13.

Street meter parking is available, also discounted parking at Children's Memorial Hospital lot, a block north on Lincoln, for $6 all day on weekends with validation.

      Hello S. Marie. Just purchased tickets (11/[masked] PM CST) from the link provided above. At that time, tix were still available. If you are still interested in going, I recommend you try that link. It is through Hot Tix/ Ticketmaster and I paid the $15.75+$3.00. Good luck.
