Coming out of the pandemic, amidst an economic and health slump combined, African Americans in Baltimore are trying to laugh again.
Although the 68-year-old black owned and operated theatre, never closed, it is welcoming to see seats being filled, and the sound of cheers heard aloud.
THE BUTLER DID IT AGAIN, is currently being staged at the Arena; and of special interest, the cast is primarily of senior citizens. This, is a push to show that “age is just a number”.
I saw this on the plays’ third night, which makes it a work in progress, that will only get better before its end on May 8th, 2022.
