Join in a curated space for people in the Black community to authentically engage with our Tuesday, November 28th performance of Fat Ham.
On behalf of WURD Tiffany Bacon (radio personality and Fat Ham costume designer) will be hosting a Q&A with Fat Ham playwright, James Ijames and director, Amina Robinson.
Our friends from OMG Studios will be hosting games, crafts and a photobooth!
Plus, the amazing DJ Aqueous will keep the party going in our lobby after the show.
The Wilma Theater’s Black Affinity Night is a mindful curation of an environment meant to center the experience of people who identify as part of the Black community — dedicated to generating a space for Black identifying individuals to engage with the performance in ways that are authentic to them.
All people who self-identify as Black, and their guests, are specifically invited to attend. Though no one will be turned away, it is encouraged that folks outside of the Black community join us on another night!

Good Karma Cafe is the Wilma Theater’s resident coffee shop! Good Karma Café was founded in 2007 with a clear vision in mind. We wanted to open an awesome coffee shop that did everything right and in line with our personal values of economic parity, sustainable ecology, and genuine relationships. We made a commitment to that vision on day 1 and owner Shawn Nesbit, with the support and contributions of all staff members in the stores, continue to focus on delivering on that vision – one cup at a time, one guest at a time, one day at a time.
