Alley Theatre presents Old Black and White Hollywood
Hollywood, 1954. Black comedienne Doris Jean is performing at an after-hours club and catches the eye of producer Samuel Stahr. His TV show featuring a former radio star is floundering; Doris Jean may be just what The Eva Rose Show needs. Doris refuses to play a maid and is cast as one anyway. But the two women connect and make a delightful comedy duo. Still, how high can a talented Black woman rise in old black and white Hollywood?
The production, a new play by Houston author and former LA actor ShaWanna Renee Rivond, will be available to stream at any time between April 16 and May 16.
