The opening of OnQ Productions’ 11th season features A Brown Tale, a coming-of-age tale in which writer and performer James T. Alfred takes us through his life story by playing 20 different characters. Charlotte theater heads remember Alfred from his role as MLK, Jr., in The Mountaintop at Booth Playhouse in 2014, but he made a splash across national television screens more recently as Tyree in the Fox hit Empire, and as Kenya Taylor in the Starz original series Boss.
