G. C. Sullivan's one-woman show, Bo will run at Off-Broadway's 42nd Street Workshop Dec. 9-20. Drawn from Sullivan's childhood memories of his mother, Bo tells of a strong woman of color who breaks the cycle of violence and abuse around her while bringing up her children. The piece marks Sullivan's playwriting debut.
Sullivan also directs actress Willie Ann Gissendanner (Cora in the Workshop's Angel Wings). Scott Davis designed the lights with Sullivan and Davis designing the set. Live music is composed and performed by Lew Mochson.
Tickets are $12-$8. Reservations can be made by calling 212-695-4173. The 42nd Street Workshop is located at 432 W. 42nd Street.
