Fleetwood-Jourdain Theatre is wonderfully designed and intimate without a bad seat in the house, but when they're sold out … they're are sold out. All of the Theatre's productions are worth more than the price of admission. If you've been, you know. But if you haven't, go and see that for yourself. They've been nominated for seven Black Theatre Alliance Awards this year, including Best Play (The Mountaintop), Best Musical (Crowns), Best Actor/Actresses (Jelani Pitcher, Shadana Patterson and Jazzma Pryor), and Best Lighting Design (The Mountaintop). 'Black Ballerina' will be eligible for the 2020 award season. FJT is a world class theatre, right here in Evanston. Black Ballerina will change the way you experience the performing arts and hopefully inspire you to recognize and appreciate more of the remarkably talented Black and Brown artists who are often overlooked because of outdated, limiting, and bigoted traditions of a particular art genre. This world-premiere play features Kara Roseborough, a fiercely gifted Black ballerina, and a cast of outstanding actors performing with precision and honesty. Get your tickets today. Show times: -- Saturday, August 24 from 7 p.m. 9 p.m. -- Sunday, August 25 from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. Photo: Kara Roseborough. Photo by Basil Clunie
