Are you ready for Motown, family, and feeling?

In the sizzling summer of '67, Motown was breaking records and breaking down barriers. Detroit '67 explores a moment in history rife with police brutality, immense racial divide, and a powder keg of emotions, through the eyes of one family.

Siblings Chelle and Lank make ends meet by running an unlicensed bar in their Detroit basement, a risky business as police crack down on after-hours joints in black neighborhoods. When Lank offers shelter to an injured white woman, tensions escalate both in their home and in the community -- and they find themselves caught in the middle of the violent uprising.

Tickets are selling fast for the Rocky Mountain regional premiere of the work of Dominque Morisseau, a writer who is on fire for theatre and for social justice. You won't want to miss this chance to see her work and the performances of an amazing cast featuring Curious company members Jada Suzanne Dixon and Cajardo Lindsey under the direction of hip-hop artist, writer, and educator Idris Goodman (who is making his debut at the Curious). Check out the video below for more about the play.
