The next installment of The Robey Theatre Company’s online series presents Blair Underwood. Underwood will discuss the current and future state of the Theatre, the impact of the pandemic on the performing arts, and the response of the arts to the recent global uprising in support of racial and social justice. This will be followed by a Q&A session with the audience.
