This summer, Westcoast Black Theatre Troupe is pleased to present the touring production Real Life, which was written and directed – and, for this run, will star – occasional WBTT artist Joel P. E. King. Real Life, a two-act “hip hopera” with sizzling song and dance, has been described as Rent meets In the Heights; it’s a transformational story that explores the attitudes of urban living. The main character, Ray, has a test of faith as he is forced to choose his morality over a sensationalized street nature that may lead to his demise. Show runs June 6-16 at the Westcoast Black Theatre (1646 10th Way, Sarasota) at 7:30 p.m.; the show on June 10 will include a talk-back with King. Tickets are $29.50/adults, $15/students and active military (with valid ID). Go to westcoastblacktheatre.org or call the Box Office at (941) 366-1505.
