Noah masterfully moderated the talkback by allowing the audience to gain some intriguing insight as he individually asked each cast and production member deep and insightful questions. “I have seen this show four times, and I feel as though I see something new every time,” Noah says as he points out the many layers of the show, “I believe this is how Broadway shows should be.”

With recently dedicating a spectacular night full of celebration and representation with “Big, Black and Queer Night,” the audience was treated to this extraordinary event celebrating Black Theater. Each cast member shared personal and insightful stories about their roles and the play’s meaning as the date drew closer to their final performance. The post-show talkback featured book writer Michael R. Jackson, choreographer Raja Feather Kelly and cast members.
