I can only imagine that when I am looking back as my time as chair of the Department of Theatre & Dance – our recent production of For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow Is Enuf will stand out as a high water mark.  This was an outstanding collaboration from directors Allen Grimm and Linda Carter-Griffith, set designer Jake Josef with lights and costumes by Billy Murray.  I have never seen an ensemble cast more committed to a project. The student actors and technicians made this script come alive in such an impactful way. I look at this photo of the cast with such admiration. To mark the passing of the playwright, attached is an article of “seven flames” kindled – I am pretty sure there are many, many more flames out there ignited by Ntozake Shange work.
