There will be a SIXTH play in the Apple Family series by Richard Nelson launching July 1st. “And So We Come Forth,” which is the second one via Zoom. The first, “What Do We Need To Talk About” was viewed 80,000 times in more than 30 countries.

Way back in 1955, in her play “Trouble in Mind,” Alice Childress looked at racism in the world of NY theater, through the experience of one Black actress. Now Roundabout
is bringing “Trouble in Mind” to Broadway at the American Airlines Theatre sometime “in Winter 2021/22.”

A great idea from Whoopi Goldberg
— replacing “Great White Way” with “Great Bright Way.” (thus eliminating the unintentional connotation) as synonym for Broadway.
