Most people wouldnt have any trouble fitting their entire life story into one autobiographical book. The fact that Maya Angelou has managed to write six autobiographieswhile gathering critical acclaim for other endeavors along the wayis indicative of the life shes lived. In her 82 years, Angelou has been (in no particular order) a teen mom, a poet laureate, a director, a prostitute, a professional dancer, a playwright, an actress, and, of course, an autobiographer.
The show is part of the Unique Lives and Experiences Tour, and is described as an extraordinary evening with the legendary Maya Angelou. Given that broad introduction, and the fact that Broadway in the Hood will make a guest appearance, be prepared to witness anything from oratory to torch-juggling.
