The Colored Museum was
recognized in 1986 as an important new work by up-and-coming playwright,
George C. Wolfe. Chosen by Crossroads Theatre as the best new play in America
during the CBS/FDG New Plays Program, a nationwide search for new writing
talent sponsored by CBS and The Foundation for the Dramatic Guild.
The successful launching in 1986 of The
Colored Museum at Crossroads led to a long-running
engagement at the Public Theater where Wolfe would eventually become its
artistic director. He has since expanded his horizons to become a lauded
Broadway and film director (Lackawanna
Blues for HBO and the recently released Ma Rainey's Black Bottom).
