‘Colored Girls’ Play Gets New, Curvy Look

Inside the intimate setting of the Anacostia Art Center’s black box theater, patrons eagerly awaited the SoulFly Theatre Society’s latest production, “For Colored Girls – The Curvy Edition.” Directed by Cynthia Dorsey and performed by a dynamic cast of women, SoulFly’s three-day production, performed on Nov. 19, 20 and 22, is a revival of poet and playwright Ntozake Shange’s 1976 theatrical classic with just one modern-day twist: Nearly all of her players are full-figured women.
