A Boy and His Soul
A Boy And His Soul By Colman Domingo
Where do you get soul? From the kitchen rotary phone cord your sister stretched out nine feet? From never learning the real secrets of your crazy cousin until you were older? From the broken Easy Bake oven your brother used to torment your sister’s Barbie dolls? Or from the memory of watching your parents sell the house you grew up in?
Maybe you get soul from listening to the music on WDAS FM with your mother in the backyard at midnight on a hot summer evening. From Stevie, Aretha, Marvin, Chaka, Barry, Gladys…and Colman.
A Boy and His Soul is the winner of the 2012 Lucille Lortel Award for Best Solo Show Off-Broadway, GLAAD Media Award for Best Production in New York, Broadway and Off-Broadway, and Drama Desk, Drama League and Audelco nominations for Best Performance.
