Hello America (Written by Brandon Rainey) is a riveting production that paints the picture of being a black man in America. These men take you on a hysterical but emotional journey of masculinity, spirituality, fatherhood, sexuality, love, lust & identity through the use of creative storytelling, monologue, audience interaction, film & music.

Rainey’s language, with its echoes and repetitions, has a driving rhythm that allows for a natural flow through seemingly disparate topics. Only when major costume changes take place does the action grind to a halt and create some dead air. It’s a minor quibble in an otherwise successful piece that strives to create a “safe space” for black consciousness. What’s more, many people outside the black community will appreciate the performance and benefit from hearing these truths laid bare.

“Hello, America. We are more than just a number.”
