Many of the young performers have gone to success on Broadway, on the big screen and in the recording studio.
This reimagining of the classic story is directed by Brian Jordan, Jr., well known to BET viewers as "Maurice Webb" on the popular show Sistas. Featuring an all-Atlanta cast. the production will honor the history, and illuminate the power of True Colors' artistic excellence in Black
