Kenny Leon’s True Colors announces theater lineup

While its artistic director Kenny Leon is back in the news with the Tupac Shakur project he has nurtured for several years, his True Colors Theatre Company has announced a three-play 2013-14 season. Leon is currently in New York helming a workshop production of “Holler If Ya Hear Me,” a musical based on Shakur songs, in hopes of securing a 2013-14 Broadway run.

Meanwhile, True Colors plans this lineup for the upcoming Atlanta season: George C. Wolfe’s “Spunk” (Sept. 17-Oct. 13); the regional premiere of David Mamet’s “Race” (Feb. 25-March 23); and Bernard Slade’s “Same Time Next Year,” starring Phylicia Rashad and Leon (July 8-Aug. 3).

Subscriptions, tickets: 1-877-725-8849, www.ticketalternative.com.

Great News. I look forward to checking out the lineup…especially “Spunk”. Thanks to Kenny for remembering those of us in ATL that love great theater. He could have focused all his time and energy on projects in NY projects instead. So glad he did not:)

I saw “Race” in New York several years ago with David Alan Grier, Kerry Washington, James Spader,and Richard Thomas(John-boy.) Fast moving, and very dramatic.Can’t wait to see the Atlanta production.
