The Very Last Days of First Colored Circus (Encore Performance)
"A hugely satisfying saga bursting with heart, humor, and song." ~DC Metro Theatre Arts

"Musical sequence in the second act makes you sit up straight." ~The Washington Post

"Butler has the grit and talent to go far." ~DC Theatre Scene

The Helen Hayes recommended hit, "The Very Last Days of The First Colored Circus," returns with a redemptive new story of love, loss, and family set against the backdrop of the 1927 Charles County Fair.  Written by Arena Stage Playwright's Arena Fellow Steven A. Butler, Jr. and directed by Courtney Baker-Oliver, "The Very Last Days of the First Colored Circus" is an epic story told with music that you won't soon forget.
