Williamstown, MA (6/26/08) -- The Williamstown Theatre Festival will host a special one-night only reading this Sunday featuring April Yvette Thompson, from the cast of Broke-ology. The reading is free and open to the public.
This Sunday, June 29 at 7:30pm, April Yvette Thompson (The Exonerated, The Antigone Project), who will appear in this summer's Broke-ology by Nathan Louis Jackson (July 9-20), will perform her one woman show, Liberty City, co-written by Jessica Blank (The Exonerated), on the Nikos Stage. Nominated for a Lucille Lortel Award for Outstanding Solo Show and Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle Awards for Outstanding Solo Performance, Liberty City is inspired by April's childhood in 1970s Miami and her family's journey through the end of the Black Power movement. It tells the story of April's Miami: a place shaped by immigrants and islands, by intermarriage and rebellion, by history and struggle and love.
