In 2014, the LAByrinth Theater Company produced A Sucker EMCEE, a one-man show from Craig "Mums" Grant. Grant, a poet and actor, used hip-hop and rhymes to tell his life story, from a young boy in the Bronx to a great success in the acting field — he appeared on HBO's OZ — to back to the Bronx again.
Three and a half years after the play's initial run, the show is coming back, this time at the National Black Theatre in Harlem.
The show will have a limited six-show engagement. The original production team, which included director Jenny Koons, DJRichMedina and set designer David Meyer, are all returning, so expect the same quality as the initial show.
Tickets for A Sucker EMCEE are on sale now and cost $25 in advance and $35 at the door. The show will run from April 26 through April 30, 2017, so jump on this quickly.
