One thought on “Bowie Center for the Performing Arts

  1. I saw Chocolate Covered Ants last night with a friend. We were both blown away. It’s a really good play, well acted, well directed and in some parts, really fantastic. Furthermore, it is extremely thought-provoking and explores themes that are not limited to being black. As a white, Jewish woman, I found it very relatable, in addition to educational (one of the most important things for me when I go to the theater is that I learn something new, and I did.) My comment is for anyone who wants to go and see it today or tomorrow the last two days. But it’s also for this site and the director, producer and writer of Chocolate Covered Ants. I searched and searched for somewhere to put a review. There doesn’t seem to be a place on this site, and more importantly, there wasn’t a place anywhere else either — except in all of these out of town newspapers. Let’s face it, nobody is flying in from Charlotte, San Francisco, Tampa or Fort Wayne to see a show in Bowie MD. It is promoted in these papers all over the country. What’s up with that? Also — it needs to be promoted in a way that would *also* attract a white audience because they need to see it more than anyone. I told the playwright and I think the director last night (I was one of only two white people in the audience) — white people should see this too! Anyway, I highly recommend it but it needs to get out there more to a wider audience. Thanks!
