Love African American Style
Writer: Marc L Abbott
Director: Steven Van Patten
Performer: Marc L Abbott

About the show: Marc L Abbott never thought he was much of a catch to anyone. He even questioned who and how he loved someone. After a heart wrenching breakup in college, he becomes a friend with benefits to a former crush. But when that spirals out of control, he turns to a form of personal ad dating in a desperate attempt to find love. When a woman answers the ad, an unexpected series of events happen that has Marc realizing this style of loving someone wasn’t always wrong.

Advance tickets are $10 and on sale now through Brown Paper Tickets.

Doors open at 6:45pm – Show starts at 7pm

Performance will be held at TADA! Theater 15 West 28th St, 2nd floor Between Broadway and 5th Avenue




Maaan, You’ve Got To Hear This –  Every 3rd Wednesday a month

Have you ever been a part of an incident that leaves you in such a state that when you get back around your friends the only thing you can say is Maaan, You’ve Got To Hear This?

I bring you a new monthly storytelling show where you get seven minutes to tell that story! Maaan, You’ve Got To Hear This is a non theme storytelling show where anyone can come, put theur name in a can and, if your name is pulled, you tell your true story (and yes, it must be true). Oh, I should also add no paper, props or musical performances within your story.

Every third Wednesday at Precious Metal  located at 143 Troutman Street in Bushwick, Brooklyn. Drop your name in the can for a chance at seven full minutes!
