News   New York Couple Gets Taste of White Chocolate Off-Broadway in September New Yorker cartoonist and writer William Hamilton's play White Chocolate about a wealthy couple who wake up black will get its debut at The Culture Project's 45 Bleecker Street Theatre starting Sept. 16.

The work set to open Oct. 7 will be directed by David Schweizer — who recently staged Charles L. Mee's comedy Wintertime Off-Broadway.
