The Happening: A Theatrical Mixtape Vol IV by Darius V Daughtry

Fort Lauderdale, Florida

This holiday season theater aficionados may want to consider the gift of theater tickets to see the latest creation of Rising Star Playwright Darius V. Daughtry. Presented by Broward Center and Art Prevails Project The Happening: A Theatrical Mixtape, Volume IV: Black Like He is a tapestry that explores the intricacies of life from the unique lens of Black men. Through simple moments and complex emotions, universal humanity is revealed and woven together with poetry, music, and dance. Written and directed by Daughtry, Founder of Art Prevails Project, and features some of South Florida’s finest talent. “The Happening: A Theatrical Mixtape, Volume IV: Black Like He is a journey filled with joy, struggle, love, and truth.

“Contrary to popular belief and narratives, Black men are not a monolith. While there are shared experiences, there is a diversity of perspectives as well. This production aims to explore those experiences and perspectives while leaving room for the many other voices that exist,” said Daughtry.

The event is part of the Broward Center’s Arts for Action: Black Voices initiative which aims to use the arts as a tool or catalyst to heighten awareness, deepen knowledge, and mobilize action on social justice issues.

Arts for Action: Black Voices initiatives are generously supported by JM Family Enterprises, Inc.
