Bill Posley's The Day I Became Black transfers to Soho Playhouse's mainstage where it officially opens April 25. The hit solo show from the comedian and performer began performances in the theatre's downstairs space March 8 and will now continue its extended run upstairs through May 26.
The Day I Became Black is created, written and performed by Posley (CBS’s The Neighborhood, Netflix’s Glow), with direction by Bente Engelstoft (The Ellen DeGeneres Show).
Nominated for Best Solo Show and Top of the Fringe at the 2018 Hollywood Fringe Festival, the show details Bosley's experience of growing up biracial in America. Until the age of 10, Posley was happy to identify as both races, until he learns that society, ultimately, always chooses an identity for him. The Day I Became Black is a story of finding the comedy in the struggle to fit in and just be yourself.
The Off-Broadway run is produced by Kristen Boulé. The production team includes Chaz Bottoms (animation) and Brittany Belland (video editor).
