by Brick City Live Staff/March 10, 2017
As part of Women’s History Month, the Newark Public Library will host the 3rd Annual “In Full Color” Theatrical Event. Founded by Award Winning writer, actress, director, and production manager, Summer Dawn Hortillosa it was first performed in 2015 and features writing of and performances by women of color. The idea was to foster conversations about diversity, prejudice, and cultural exchange, encouraging audience members to reexamine their assumptions and attitudes.
One of the featured artists this year is the Newark native, Yvonne Hernandez writer and director of “Queer Monologues,” which made its debut at the Alchemical Studio in New York City last year. Her works have also been performed at Manhattan Repertory Theater, the Elektra Theater at Times Square, and at historic Newark Symphony Hall.
“In Full Color” is free and open to the public. For additional information, contact the Library at 973-733-7793. The performance celebrates Women’s History Month, and is part of a series of public programs organized by guest producer Celeste Bateman. PNC Foundation is proud to support the Newark Public Library’s Women’s History Celebration.
