The Green Book Is Extended Through September 25

0

Theatrical Outfit is proud to announce the World Premiere of The Green Book has been extended by popular demand through September 25, 2011 at the Balzer Theater at Herren’s.

This new drama addresses the racial tension of a period marked by Jim Crow laws and segregation, remembering an element rarely recorded in the history books: Victor H. Green’s The Negro Motorist Green Book. This manual helped guide black tourists to restaurants and residences where they could safely dine and stay overnight pre-Civil Rights Movement. When a young African-American couple and a Holocaust survivor share accommodations, the juxtaposition of local and international discrimination causes the household to share a dramatic exchange that transforms their lives.

Playing through September 25, performances are Wednesday to Saturday at 7:30 p.m. and Sundays at 2:30 p.m.; Saturday, Aug. 27 at 2:30 p.m; the Seniors Matinees Wednesday, Aug. 31 and Saturday, Sep. 10 at 2:30 p.m.; Student Matinee on Wednesday, Sep. 7 at 11 am. Group discounts are available by calling 678-528-1497.
