DETROIT—Detroit Repertory Theatre opens the new year with the world premiere of Desireé York’s The Puppeteer, directed by Casaundra Freeman and running from January 9 through March 15. Tickets are available online at www.detroitreptheatre.com.
When Constance, a 1920’s jazz singer, chooses to stand on her own, not only is her name carried on through multiple generations, but so is her determination to find an identity in an ever changing world. Spanning five generations, starting in the Harlem Renaissance and ending in present day, the women from one African-American family struggle to overcome the roles assigned to them by society in order to find their way home.
Due to the intimacy of the theater, latecomers will not be seated until intermission.
