“What I Learned in Paris”
By Pearl Cleage
Directed by Eileen J. Morris
Old loves rekindle and new love ignites in this funny and delightfully urban love story. Set against the colorful and passionate times of the 1970’s this sparkling new romantic comedy takes audiences back to when mini-skirts and bell bottoms rocked to the tune of Stevie Wonder’s 1973 hit, “Livin’ for the City; women’s liberation raised the conscience of the nation; and Atlanta made history by electing Maynard Jackson as its first Black Mayor.
Featured cast members include: Yunina Barbour-Payne, making her debut on The Ensemble Theatre stage; Kendrick Brown, just seen in “Fly;” Cynthia Brown Garcia, who was in the Ensemble’s premiere of the Thomas Meloncon play “Christmas with Great Aunt;” Detria Ward, who won the 2013 Houston Press Best Actress for her performance in The Ensemble’s production of Pearl Cleage’s “The Nacirema Society;” and Mirron Willis, who most recently performed as Malcolm X in “The Meeting.”
