...zesty and fun, Miss Grant has produced what is almost the black equivalent of a flamenco show and it seems to be a mixture of a block party and revival meeting.

An Off-Broadway Musical Revue Revival With Soul!

Garnering a Grammy and Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Musical, Don't Bother Me, I Can't Cope was the first musical revue in the history of Broadway to be written and directed by African-American women, namely Micki Grant and Vinette Carol. The production now comes to New York City Center's Mainstage as part of the brand new Encores! Off-Center 2018/19 season.

First performed in 1971, the show's themes of economic and racial injustice still ring clear today. With little dialogue in between performances, its poignant social commentary is weaved into an unbroken cycle of high-energy feel-good song and dance numbers that fuse gospel with jazz, soul and calypso. Its ability to shine a light on important issues whilst staying upbeat saw the show run for over 1000 performances during its run on the Great White Way.
