Finally, A Play About Being Black, Gay, and Living with HIV
As Much As I Can is a fully immersive, multi-sensory experience where audience members explore the lives of four men as they navigate one day. Set in a magically realized world of color and light, we step into these mens’ lives as they fall in love, learn hidden secrets, fight for family and ultimately discover truths about themselves.
Taking a deep-dive into the characters, audiences will move from room to room to witness their pivotal moments, closest relationships, and the places that changed their lives. This up-close, intimate, and communal experience communicates the universal message of self love and respect and will be reaching new audiences to spread that message.
One night only!
Roux's Blues: Promise Me, You'll Be There
Roux’s Blues: Promise Me, You’ll Be There is a feature film that effortlessly infuses advocacy into the art of storytelling. This story follows the journey of a millennial queer Black man (Roux), as he navigates love, life, and personal development. This film highlights many topics as Roux balances personal and professional life, maintains friendships, explores sexuality and deals with mishaps and misfortune. We get to explore intimate relationships, support, lack of access to resources, health equity, integrity, and what life looks like in the attempt to grow. (For mature audiences only.)
The 444 Tour is an independently produced experience powered by Shades of Hue LLC., to bring entertainment, awareness, and impact to select cities across the United States. Their goal is to build community and spark conversations that encourage empathy and compassion amongst each other, while providing attendees with quality content, lots of laughs, and something to think about.
Following the show will be a Q+A with Donnie Hue Frazier III, the writer, executive producer, and star of Roux’s Blues: Promise Me, You’ll Be There.
