ABOUT THE SHOW

Performed with original music, Monique exposes the beauty, disgrace and complication of both the black and white worlds she experienced growing up amid the political and racial tension in the seventies that is still prevalent today. Experience the bravery, vulnerability, hilarity, ignorance and ridiculousness that is race and identity in America.

ABOUT MONIQUE DEBOSE

LA native Monique DeBose is an award-winning, multi-talented playwright and Jazz-R&B-pop singer/songwriter, who has toured and entertained audiences throughout Europe, India and Asia. Her third album–The Sovereign One–is scheduled for release in Fall 2018. A leading vocal improvisationalist (having studied under Rhiannon and Joey Blake of the renowned Bobby McFerrin Voicestra), Monique now leads an international community of over 500 vocal artists throughout the United States and Europe. Inspired by her experience of of what it means to be half African American, half Irish American, she wrote the funny, heartwarming and disruptive one-woman show Mulatto Math: Summing Up The Race Equation in America to initiate conversation and heal race relations in America. She calls LA home, is married to a Brit and is raising two compassionate, culturally intelligent boys.
