“No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion.” -Nelson Mandela
The South African activist and former president Nelson Mandela (1918-2013) helped bring an end to apartheid and has been a global advocate for human rights. A member of the African National Congress party beginning in the 1940s, he was a leader of both peaceful protests and armed resistance against the white minority’s oppressive regime in a racially divided South Africa. His actions landed him in prison for nearly three decades and made him the face of the antiapartheid movement both within his country and internationally. Released in 1990, he participated in the eradication of apartheid and in 1994 became the first black president of South Africa, forming a multiethnic government to oversee the country’s transition. after retiring from politics in 1999, he remained a devoted champion for peace and social justice in his own nation and around the world until his death in 2013 at the age of 95.

The Drowsy Chaperone opens next week!
This 2006 hit musical and winner of multiple Tony awards begins in the apartment of “Man In Chair,” a reclusive musical theater fanatic eager to play us a record of his favorite 1920s musical The Drowsy Chaperone. As he plays the record and offers his own wry commentary, the wacky musical comes to life before our eyes in spectacular fashion, serving up an irresistible concoction of sparkling old-school charm and contemporary snark.
