Your contribution of any amount will help make it possible to record and release the concept cast recording and mount a future production of The Great White Way: the Bert Williams Musical! This new musical is about the famed comedian, Bert Williams, who was the first major black star on Broadway. His life in comedy, set against a time of anti-black race riots throughout the United States, tells the story of the man WC Fields called “the funniest man I ever saw and the saddest man I ever knew.”
