The Madison Theatre at the prestigious Molloy Private University opened its doors to the brilliance of Yolanda Brathwaite’s Biopic Stage Play of her life!
The 90’s Era is still in “FULL EFFECT”!! It’s finally here...“Tales Of A Grown Girl” The Stage Play, has been featured at the private campus of Molloy University at The Madison Theatre in Rockville Center, NY. A production of this magnitude has drawn almost 500 theater goers for a one of a kind stage play. Hosted by actor "Tray Chaney" of The hit television show “The Wire”, “Saints & Sinners” and “BMF” fame, just to name a few.
Producers Yolanda Brathwaite and Tanya Moss came ready and I must say ENCORE to this Off Broadway spectacular! So many nostalgic moments! Capturing the vibes of The New Jack Swing & The Golden Age of Hip Hop, this play gave us a surprise, legendary guest from Uniondale, Long Island, Hip Hop’s finest, “Dinco-D” of LOTNS aka Leader’s Of The New School” and a phenomenal music director DJ Zah on the 1’s and 2’s. It’s been a long time before New York has opened a stage to this kind of excitement. Out of her struggle, Yolanda sketched a kind of entertainment that has this kind of heavy subject matter that you have to pay attention to. I remember growing up, in who would consider a rollercoaster of the 90’s and this play brings you right back to that freshness.
