    Synopsis: 

    Kirsten Childs’ delightful, provocative, and incredibly moving 2000 musical is about a young African-American dancer named Viveca (Nikki M. James) who finds her way from West Coast suburbia to Broadway, all while navigating the politics of race and gender in an attempt to uncover her own identity. With a deceptively fun and catchy score, and a wickedly satirical take on the lives of Broadway dancers, The Bubbly Black Girl Sheds Her Chameleon Skin deserves to be seen again.

Off-Center series. “Bubbly Black Girl,” originally produced at Playwrights Horizons in 2000, has lost nothing of its high spirits — or, sadly, of its relevance.
