Breaking Stories

Buku Productions Theatre Company was proud to be asked to produce “Breaking Stories.”  This uniquely crafted play was written and performed by Fox TV 2 Newscaster, Lee Thomas.  Reuben Yabuku, Buku Productions’ Artistic Director, directed the production for Lee.  It gave audiences the rare opportunity to see Lee Thomas perform in a way you can’t see on television.  Other than the occasional appearance by featured performer, Keisha Grant, this production was a one-man stage play.

“Breaking Stories” takes a funny and intriguing look at the making of TV News with a mix of live television and theatre to better reveal the stories behind the sound bites.  Lee Thomas plays multiple characters in a plot-twisting newscast that truly comes to life.  “Breaking Stories” takes the audience behind the scenes and beyond the headlines.

Our presentation of “Breaking Stories” was May 9 – 11, 2003 at the Paul Robeson Theatre in Northwest Activities Center, Detroit.  This production was sponsored by A-Star National Realty.
