8/14: The Diary of Black Men at Allen Theatre

Posted By on Wed, Aug 12, 2009 at 4:06 PM

Playwright Thomas Meloncon’s The Diary of Black Men premiered off Broadway in 1982 and has been touring ever since. Meloncon’s morality play takes on the issue of race, with character types replacing actual characters. There’s Slick Cool Dude, Blue-Collar Working-Class Man, Militant, Middle-Class Urban Professional, Black Muslim and Player. The play uses stereotyped characters to explore love, marriage and manhood. Showtimes are at 8 p.m. tonight and tomorrow at the Allen Theatre (1501 Euclid Ave., 216.241.6000). Tickets: $20-$30. — Michael Gill
