News   Race-Reversing Comedy White Chocolate To Play at Off-Broadway's Century Center, Sept. 21
 
New Yorker cartoonist and writer William Hamilton's play White Chocolate about a wealthy white couple who wake up black has moved its debut to Off Broadway's Century Center for the Performing Arts.

The work previously announced for a Sept. 16 start at The Culture Project's 45 Bleecker Street Theatre, but will move to the new venue and begin previews Sept. 21. The Oct. 7 opening remains the same. David Schweizer — who recently staged Charles L. Mee's comedy Wintertime Off-Broadway — will direct.

White Chocolate centers on Brandon and Deborah Beale, a married and affluent couple living on New York City's Upper West Side who are readying themselves for the announcement of the husband's appointment as director of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. However, things don't go exactly as planned as the white couple awake to find their skin color has changed.

Playwright Hamilton has written for The Atlantic Monthly, Harper's Magazine and The New York Times Sunday Magazine and Gourmet in addition to his duties at the New Yorker.

The Culture Project and Allan Buchman will produce the work.

The Century Center for the Performing Arts is located at 111 East 15 Street. For more information on The Culture Project, visit the website at http://www.45bleecker.com.
