Dburt interviews noted playwright, director and producer, Shelly Garrett this Sunday at 7pm eastern. For those in the (theatrical) know, Mr. Garrett is known for creating such plays as: Beauty Shop, You're Gonna Make Me Love Somebody Else and Barber Shop. Suffice it to say, before there was a Tyler Perry, there was a Shelly Garrett. Joining me for this special broadcast, will be two esteemed blogging colleagues, Invisible Woman and Sergio from Bloodsport. We will discuss Mr. Garrett's genesis in the world of Black theatre, his thoughts on the growing division between high and low brow African-American productions, his influence on Tyler Perry's career and neo-minstrel criticisms. Also check out the 2nd half of the show for our Week in Review portion.
