Stephen Cole and FWD Theatre Project request the pleasure of your company at The Black and White Ball, a new musical on Tuesday, the twentieth of January at seven PM at City Winery Chicago, 1200 W Randolph St, Chicago, IL, 60607 R.S.V.P. firstname.lastname@example.org for industry tickets.
THE BLACK & WHITE BALL is an exciting new work by award-winning writers and stars Chicago favorite George Andrew Wolff as Truman Capote who, in 1966, announced a high profile society event for New York’s glitterati to shine. 16-year-old Ariana Burks from Chicago High School for the Arts, who won rave reviews and wowed a packed house of industry elite at the September concert, plays Emma, an orphaned black teen from poor Brooklyn who mistakes Capote’s elitist gathering for an opportunity to unite blacks and whites in a racially-divided nation. The pair’s unlikely friendship, separated by age, social status, color, and intent, makes THE BLACK & WHITE BALL a powerful and intriguing musical that - in many ways - parallels the current racial divide in our nation today.
