I'm back for another post.
So over the half term a few weeks ago (I live in the UK, a half-term is a 1 week break) I went to see an amazing theatre play called 'The Bubbly black Girl Sheds Her Chameleon Skin'.
The play started off as a young bubbly black girl who was extremely optimistic. She was brought up in the 60s, un-aware of the racism at that time. The 16th Street Baptist Church Bombing in 1963 worried her as a child. She dreamed to be a dancer, and it basically shows her growing up and the struggles she faced. As she grows up she starts to realise that she's been living in a 'bubble', floating over trouble. For instance, ignoring how her black boyfriend was treated by the police. It was funny to watch her grow up and watch her handle different situations.
The fashion to the sets to the acting to the music..It was all amazing. This play was entertaining, exciting and most importantly one of the best plays you'll ever see!
I think the message of this play was to be yourself, but don't run-away from what you are
- The things that made this musical special was -
- The set and how it was arranged
- The fun songs (not too catchy but in a good way)
- The humour
- How a change was always happening
- The fashion
And yeah..Maybe there's more to the list but overall I really, really loved this play and if I could see it again I would.
Here are some videos to wrap up the post
Have a nice day. Evening. Lunch. Dinner. Breakfast. Wherever you are in the world, bye!
