10/27-11/16 Indulge your inner Angry White Boy

Posted by novoscene on October 27, 2008

“Angry Black White Boy,” the Intersection for the Art’s new play based on the book of the same name, opens tonight and sounds like it’s worth checking out.  The Chron reviewed the book this morning.  The production stars Dan Wolf and Tommy Shepherd from Felonius, and is directed by theater vet Sean San Jose.  All three have cred in the hip hop world, otherwise, given the touchy subject matter, I might be a little iffy about this show, but add the fact that Adam Mansbach, the novel’s author, has done an interesting and funny job of discussing the intersections of music, culture and race over the last few years and you have the makings of a thought provoking show.

Angry Black White Boy is a social satire of the highest order-think Paul Beatty and Terry Southern-telling the story of Macon Detornay, a mild mannered, upper middle class, Jewish suburban kid who is “reborn” as an ass kicking fist of reparations justice, militant pro Black rapper and leader of the most radical black liberation splinter group in the country (come on, could I really make this up?).  Of course it only gets more over the top from there.  The play runs from tonight through Nov. 16.-kwan
