We have the pleasure of being the first blog to introduce you to the 'Secrets of a Black Boy'. Toronto's own playwright/actor Darren Anthony gives us a direct look into the minds of black men with his debut show. Brother of Trey Anthony, playwright/producer of box office hits ''Da Kink in My Hair' and 'I am Not a Dinner Mint', discovered his own writing abilities while being surrounded by these.
Theatre for people who don't like theatre; 'Secrets of a Black Boy' reaches and emerges with a new generation of theatre go'ers. Experience in child and youth work gave Darren Anthony ideas to sort through his personal mind. After reflection and discovery arose... 'Secrets'. The workshop sold out all four scheduled performances and were held back for an additional two shows.
We as a young, urban society can recognize characteristics that define "us". Entertainment that we can all identify with, from gun violence to interracial dating, Trey Anthony Productions delivers quality theatre experiences while discussing the diversity of Canadian culture for the urban male. Darren Anthony is opening our minds and has dared the young, urban community to be entertained!

"You are so scared to lose everything that doesn't mean anything" - which her boyfriend says to her when he's leaving the Factory. She realizes that was the biggest mistake of her life not leaving with him, and re-entering the world of Andy Warhol for the glitz and fun and games and drugs.
"I think sex is too abstract anyway" Andy Warhol said this and as weird as he was, he was really just not about definitions or any rigid definitions in any facet of his life. Think about that one. I also loved the part when her real friend from home, Syd, shows her the last pic he took of her before she left for the Big Apple - He asks her, do you remember this girl? She ran out of the cab sobbing. You need to have real friends in your life who are really really going to be there for you when the 'party' is over.
"So much more fun in NY since you showed up" is what Andy says to Edie when he first meets her. My take on this is that yes, you can always make someone else's world more fun, inspire them and be their muse. BUT don't forget about yourself and to look out for your own interests. Edie did not do that and consequently got caught up and destroyed her life. If you are looking for a good movie this weekend, you can rent this on NetFlicks
Andy Warhol was right when he said she created a whole new look and every girl wanted to look like her. This is the "Edie" look, I love it:
