Courtesy of Spin Cycle, this week’s Swag Tuesday prize is two tickets to A Boy And His Soul, a new play written and performed by Colman Domingo, recently of Passing Strange and LOGO’s Big Gay Sketch Show.
Soul is in watching your parents sell the house you grew up in. In the kitchen rotary phone cord your sister stretched out nine feet. In the broken EZbake oven your brother used to torment your sister’s Barbie dolls. Soul is in never learning the real secrets of your crazy cousin Siferdean until you were older. And listening to WDAS FM with your mother in the backyard at midnight on a hot summer evening. Soul is in Stevie, Aretha, Marvin, Chaka, Barry, Gladys…and Colman. Groove into 1970’s West Philly and discover the dazzling new play by Colman Domingo.
A Boy And His Soul begins previews at NYC’s Vineyard Theater on September 9th and runs through October 18th. Use the code SPIN35SOUL and get special discounted tickets for $35 each.
