Comments Off on NYC Welcomes “Armstrong’s Kid”
After debuting in Los Angeles and leaving its mark on Oakland, “Armstrong’s Kid” makes its way to New York City! The Off-Broadway premier of the play features Three time NAACP Theatre Award-Winner, Six time Drama-Logue Award-Winner, and Image Award-Winning novelist, playwright, producer and actor Stanley Bennett Clay, and Nursha Project Artist, actor, playwright, comedian, and producer, Thandiwe Thomas De Shazor.
THE GAY SCHOOLTEACHER!
THE FALSE ACCUSATION!
THE FINAL SHOWDOWN!
Stanley Bennet Clay stars in his gripping new play as a gay schoolteacher falsely accused of child molestation by his best friend’s 14-year-old son, and ends up spending nearly a year in prison before the truth is revealed.
Eleven years later, the now-grown accuser, co-star Thandiwe Thomas De Shazor, seeks forgiveness, igniting a blistering showdown rife with bitter confrontations, shocking revelations, vicious humor, dark truths, and lots of Jack Daniels.
Executive Producer Chas. Floyd Johnson
“This should be on Broadway!”

Straight out of San Francisco’s Castro District, Pomo Afro Homos (Postmodern, African American, you know the rest), the badass brothas of queer performance rocked Dance Place in the 90s. Two decades later, Pomo co-founder, writer and director Brian Freeman remixes the company’s classic work Fierce Love with a fresh crew of San Francisco/Bay Area badass brothas.
Shining a light on Black gay life, the heart of Fierce Love is rooted in the early 1990s when it was created. While some of the pop culture references have been updated and a few new pieces have been added, including a hip hop number, many of the issues the show takes on have not changed in 20 years. As one of the few theatrical works exploring Black gay life, Fierce Love is still relevant in the US and beyond as the dialogue on race and sexuality continues to evolve.
