History will be made tonight at the American Airlines Theatre, where for the first time a work by playwright Alice Childress will premiere. Directed by Charles Randolph-Wright, Trouble in Mind begins previews this evening ahead of an official opening on November 18, 2021. 

Trouble in Mind is led by LaChanze as “Wiletta Mayer,” with Michael Zegen as “Al Manners,” Chuck Cooper as “Sheldon Forrester,” Danielle Campbell as “Judy Sears,” Jessica Frances Dukes as “Millie Davis,” Brandon Micheal Hall as “John Nevins,” Simon Jones as “Henry,” Alex Mickiewicz as “Eddie Fenton,” and Don Stephenson as “Bill O’Wray.”

Following an experienced Black stage actress through rehearsals of a major Broadway production, Alice Childress’s wry and moving look at racism, identity, and ego in the world of New York theatre opened to acclaim Off-Broadway in 1955. At the forefront of both the Civil Rights and feminist movements, the prescient Trouble in Mind was announced to move to Broadway in 1957…in a production that never came to be.

Meet members of the cast and team, and see why Trouble in Mind is not to be missed
