Take a trip down history lane by visiting the play Fly! Presented by The Pasadena Playhouse and Crossroads Theatre Company, in honor of Black History month, Fly dramatizes the historic contributions made by the Tuskegee Airmen to the desegregation of the American military and the furthering of civil rights. The Tuskegee Airmen, who were trained and educated near Tuskegee, Alabama, were the first African-American military aviators in the United States Armed Forces and were subjected to racial discrimination, both within and outside the army.
Fly with a cast of eight men, including a dancer who uses tap dance steps to set a mood, focuses on the hope, endurance and accomplishments of the Tuskegee Airmen that flew over the skies of Europe and North Africa during World War II.
Ricardo Khan, Tony Award-winning, Co-writer and Director of Fly says, “I have always been extremely fortunate to have the right cast of amazing people for every production of Fly that I’ve done over the years. It’s what makes the doing of this so compelling and complete. This cast for The Pasadena Playhouse/Crossroads production is extraordinary. We took much longer than usual to finally assemble the perfect group, but with Pat McCorkle casting, we did it! And here we are with an exceptionally talented, passionate and committed ensemble of young men ready to take California by storm with a story of unparalleled positivity, pride, courage, achievement! Such an honor to be supported by Sheldon and The Pasadena Playhouse this way. And so looking forward to bringing Fly finally to the West coast!”
Fly runs until Feb 21st. Make sure not to miss this!!
