This week Drew & Donja are joined by prolific poet and mental health advocate Bassey Ikpi who discusses her new forthcoming book ‘I’m Telling The Truth But I’m Lying’, her time on the first national tour of Russel Simmons’ Def Poetry Jam, and more. We also discuss white theatre critics (sigh) again, the Rachel Dolezal of the theatre, and the obsession with tragedy porn in the theatre. Hit your mark! It’s time to go Off Book!
Go into the world of black theatre artists on this weekly podcast with a playwright, an actress, & a journalist as they explore and process life in NYC while pursuing their Broadway dreams.
