“The Colored Museum” was one of the nation’s top plays in the 1980’s. The play, written by George C. Wolfe, is eleven exhibits of Black American life through the years. “The Colored Museum” was Buku Productions Theatre Company’s first production in 1990, and it was the sold-out hit a fledgling theatre company could only dream of having. With all thirty-six (36) shows at Detroit Repertory Theatre selling out completely, we were on our way.
In 2004, Buku Productions reprised the show with an all-new cast and packed them in again at Paul Robeson Theatre in Detroit.
