Center Theatre Group presents Larry Powell’s The Gaze…No Homo, a satiric dramedy about the decolonization of the Black imagination which will be presented on Center Theatre Group’s Digital Stage begins February 25, and runs through March 25, 2021. Produced by Tell Me A Story Productions, The Gaze will be free to the public for the first weekend (February 25 through 28) and cost $20 for the remainder of the run.
Adapted from his own 2020-2021 Eugene O’Neill Theater Center National Playwrights Conference Finalist play, writer / creator Larry Powell refers to this production of The Gaze as a “#Digiplay Experience.” Set in the prestigious Evergreen Theatre Festival tucked in a bucolic small town, which prides itself on developing the brightest and boldest new American voices, a young actor is cast in the virtual production of an emerging Black queer playwright. As the established director dreams of Broadway and tensions rise in heated Zoom-based rehearsals, The Gaze”examines the process of building culturally specific and queer works of color in historically white spaces.
The Gaze will be free to the public for the first weekend (February 25 through 28) and cost $20 for the remainder of the run. On or after February 25, CLICK HERE to watch on demand on Center Theatre Group’s website.
