The Roux: A Spicy Brown Burlesque Show
Still feeling the high from being apart of such a powerfully, talented brown cast. Grateful for an audience that showed up and hurled so much of their energy to the stage. It’s not everyday that I get to look at the cast photo from a show and see a full range of brown skin. Thank you Blu Reine for having me among such a talented cast and for working towards creating safe spaces for a brown queer like myself. #theroux
Ya’ll have one more time to catch Er’man at the Chicago Fringe Festival!
SEPT 6 @ 7 PM. <——THAT’S TOMORROW!
Which means if you play your cards right you can catch me in two different shows on the same night in the same building. (Black As Eye Wanna Be, Sept 6, @ 8:30 pm)
That’s called convenience… and also Samantha Lee’s original song she wrote just for Er’man is every bit as beautiful and enamoring live!

This Friday I’ll be making my ATL debut as part of the Clubesque cast were I plan on being the baddest ass muthafucka in the building cause you know.. PO’CHOP!
Opening night of Black As Eye Wanna Be at the Chicago Fringe Festival was EVERYTHING! An evening that was filled with joy and passion and honesty. I think the best part was looking out to see my [chosen] family there. Support. I felt extremely lucky to be edified and loved by such giving, talented folks. This show has taught me so much about collaboration, dedication, love, patience, communication, expectation. I feel overwhelmed with all of the feels.
For those of ya’ll who were there. Thank you!
For those that weren’t: You have 2 more chances :: Sept 4th & Sept 6th!
I would hurl words into the darkness and wait for an echo, and if an echo sounded, no matter how faintly, I would send other words to tell, to march, to fight, to create a sense of the hunger for life that gnaws in us all, to keep alive in our hearts a sense of the inexpressibly human.
Cause not all of us have the natural ability to serve FACE.
