Genghis Cohen, delicious Asian food. Best to reserve. Park at the theater and then walk a block and a half to the restaurant.

There were significant technical difficulties the night I attended but the play was still thoroughly researched and exceedingly well performed. I do wonder if even without the problems if the lengthy photo montages between portrayals doesn't slow...continued

Quotes & Highlights

Goldstar members have loved Brown in her performances at other theaters. Read what they have to say about her shows at The Lillian Theatre, The Shelton Theatre and Theatre/Theater, where it won Goldstar’s “Roar of the Crowd” award.
“Ms. Brown is herself a pioneer of today, forging her own artistic creation … in a town full of celebrities … she herself is breaking new ground."  —The Examiner
“I just saw this great performance, Oh, Yes She Did by Sandy Brown, covering important African American women throughout history. It was quite incredible. I’ve always been an avid supporter of civil rights and this performance has only strengthened my feminist and egalitarian beliefs. I now have a huge list of books to read by Angela Davis, Gloria Steinem, and many others. It will probably take me years to read them all, but that’s a price I’m all too willing to pay. So I say: “Power to the people!!!” —Feminist Humor Blog

Description
