Harriet, Rosa & Me

May 26, 2018 at 8:00 PM

New York Times Acclaimed playwright JD Lawrence, (the creator, executive producer, and star of Bravo’s Your Husband Is Cheating On Us), brings to The Paramount a show that is not only educational but entertaining. Harriet, Rosa & Me is a thought-provoking, inspiring, and witty theatrical presentation written and directed by the NAACP Legacy Award-recipient. JD Lawrence’s Harriet, Rosa & Me is a show for everyone, in the soul-stirring spirit of Hidden Figures and Fences. The show takes place at a local city bus stop where a young lady named Hope decides to skip school to avoid a Black History exam she refused to study for when Black History Month is over. As she lets several buses pass without getting on them, she notices another young lady, Rosa, who is not getting on the bus as well, however for an entirely different reason. As the two make small talk, Rosa informs Hope of who she is as well as the importance of Black History and why Hope should get on the bus. However, when Hope reluctantly rejects Rosa’s candid advice, Hope decides to take the subway that’s just feet away from the bus stop. As she leaves the bus depot, she comes face to face with Harriet and is once again reminded of the importance of Black History, but this time the gloves are off as no-holds-barred Harriet gives Hope a dose of reality. Will Hope get on the bus or will she let a life lesson pass her by? Get ready to be “edu-tained” in this historical and poignant presentation. JD Lawrence, dubbed “The Man of Many Faces” by Ebony Magazine, has undeniably created a formula for success that no one at this present time can duplicate with as much ease or uncanny ability. Critics have called him everything from “the best-kept secret in theatre” to “undoubtedly the future of urban theatre”, all of which prove true in JD Lawrence’s Harriet, Rosa & Me
