BAM DEBUT

 
“sharp and intellectual, goofy and raw”
The Atlantic
The endlessly clever and charming co-hosts of the beloved podcast Still Processing come to you live for one night only. Wesley Morris and Jenna Wortham, culture writers for The New York Times, grace the Opera House stage for an evening of discussion about the last few decades of Black women in music—and their “fearless, free expression of bodacious badness and straight-up sex.” They trace an arc that begins with Cheryl Lynn, Vanessa Williams, Anita Baker, Rebbie Jackson, Jody Watley, Janet Jackson, Queen Latifah, MC Lyte, and Da Brat, with a specific focus on the masculine energy of the 1980s and 1990s to connect the distant past with the current moment. Special guests to be announced.
