I, too, saw FAIRVIEW at TFANA in Brooklyn. I was blown away by it. Absolutely loved it. It was a visceral experience.
One clarification in response to chamberlain’s post. It wasn’t just black audience members who remained in their seats. The actor playing Keisha asked for anyone who identifies as white to come on the stage and anyone who identifies as non-white to remain in their seats. At least that’s how I remember it.
It was a powerful experience and a thought provoking meditation on the white gaze in theater.
Glad to hear it’s getting high quality regional productions as well.
