Bootleg Theater Presents


a not-too-dark comedy

created and performed by


6 shows only - Fridays and Saturdays  - 7 - 22 August - 8:00 pm

Mark Broyard and Roger Guenveur Smith return with the nationally-acclaimed INSIDE THE CREOLE MAFIA, distinguished by the LA Weekly as Production of the Year for both its Premiere and Post-Katrina runs.

Their "not-too-dark comedy" continues to negotiate the slippery slope of identity politics, while serving up a Mardi Gras-inspired feast of red beans and race.

With the ease of seasoned vaudevillian-chefs, the longtime friends engage the audience in a deceptively civil patois, while post-racial America simmers on the back burner.

"Hilarious" - Margo Jefferson, New York Times
