A Live Reading From the Billie Holiday Theater
Saturday at 8 p.m. on Facebook
The Billie Holiday Theater is hosting a special online reading of the James Sheldon play “Reparations,” which tells the story of a recently widowed white book editor who invites a younger black writer to her apartment. The show was the centerpiece of the theater’s fall 2019 season, and a majority of its original cast will reunite for this reading, including Lisa Arrindell Anderson, Kamal Bolden and Gys de Villiers. Last year, The New York Times called it “a play that turns expectations on their heads.”
