Pretty Fire

Pretty Fire by Charlayne Woodard

When: March 12-22, 2015, Thur-Sat at 8pm, Sun at 2:30pm
Where: Austin Playhouse, Highland Mall, 6001 Airport Blvd.
Tickets: $20 Regular tickets / $15 Seniors & students

This one-woman show, written by Tony nominated actress Charlayne Woodard, begins with a dangerous premature birth and two young parents who place their child’s survival directly in the hands of God.

Co-produced by Spectrum Theatre Company and Austin Playhouse, Pretty Fire intertwines tender memories of triumph, faith, adversity, and love from an African-American childhood that entertains while connecting to deep places of the heart.

“Exhilarating and unflaggingly entertaining…One of the most positive pictures of the black-American experience I’ve ever seen on stage…Rapturous tales…” —NY Times.
