Kirsten Childs’ delightful, provocative, and incredibly moving 2000 musical is about a young African-American dancer who finds her way from West Coast suburbia to Broadway, all while navigating the politics of race and gender in an attempt to uncover her own identity. With a deceptively fun and catchy score and a wickedly satirical take on the lives of Broadway dancers, The Bubbly Black Girl Sheds Her Chameleon Skin deserves to be seen again.
