Powerhouse Colman Domingo brings Dot to New York!

Colman Domingo is a powerhouse! He’s taking over bit by bit, so watch out. Don’t know who this proud Yale Alumni is? Then you must have been under a rock for some time. This Olivier, Tony, Drama Desk and Drama League Award nominated and Obie, Lucille Lortel, GLAAD Award winning actor has a added another successful moment to his playwriting career with his latest installment, DOT.

With his newest play, DOT, he is tackling Dementia through a comic lens. The play is coming to The Vineyard Theatre in New York City after a successful run at the 39th Annual Humana Festival of New American Plays at the Actors Theatre of Louisville in Kentucky. The NY cast has yet to be announced but this production will be at the helm of multi Tony Award winning director Susan Stroman, who directed Colman in Scottsboro Boys. Sounds like a match made in heaven. The sad part is we have to wait until 2016. DOT is slated for the 2015-2016 season and will open in the winter of 2016. In the meantime in between time, enjoy a snippet from the show in Louisville.

Family matriarch Dotty and her three adult children gather for the holidays with more than exchanging presents on their minds. As Dotty struggles to navigate life with dementia, her children fight to balance care for their mother and care for themselves. A testament to the enduring bonds of family, this hilarious and moving new play grapples unforgettably with aging parents, midlife crises, and the heart of an inner city neighborhood.
