Trouble in Paradise…
Paradise Blue at City Theatre (Spring 2022)
Dominique Morisseau’s haunting drama profiles Detroit’s historic Black Bottom neighborhood on the brink of gentrification in 1949. Club owner Blue grapples with ghosts from the past and the prospect of a new beginning. When Silver (a mysterious woman from out of town) shows up, things heat up in more ways than one. Directed by Kent Gash and featuring an original score by Theron Brown, City Theatre’s production of Paradise Blue connects Detroit’s history with gentrification with the theater’s own city of Pittsburgh.
“Not only was Susan Tsu’s costume design for this producion impeccable, she created the most collaborative experience I’ve ever had with a designer! Her pieces took my connection to Silver to another level.”– Eunice
Outdoor Theatre in Alabama…
Shoebox Picnic Roadside: Route One at Alabama Shakespeare Festival (Fall 2021)
Eunice originated the role of Gladys in this immersive outdoor world premiere written by Deneen Reynolds-Knott. Set in 1955, the play invites the audience to have a roadside picnic with the Zollicoffer Cooke family as they make a stop along their annual roadtrip from Harlem to their hometown in North Carolina.
“It was truly an honor to return to Alabama Shakespeare Festival in their first production back after the shutdown….and performing a piece about the love of family was just what I needed!”– Eunice
