On the Boards has already had a wildly diverse roster of performances this season. Markeith Wiley‘s new work, It’s Not Too Late, merges stand-up comedy, theater and physicality. In addition to bending genre, each performance will be a little different, featuring a shifting cast of characters each night. From On the Boards:
Billing himself as “Seattle’s first Black talk show host,” choreographer and performer Markeith Wiley unveils a new no-holds-barred persona as an engaging, brutally direct entertainer and loquacious dancer. The episodic format of It’s Not Too Late features live music and a rotating cast of local guests.
Guests over the four nights of performance include musician Evan Flory-Barnes, writer and artist Natasha Marin, educator and poet Imani Sims and many other dancers and musicians. Wiley is himself an accomplished and multi-talented performer and we’re excited to see what he comes up with. And we aren’t alone. These performances are almost sure to sell out, so it’s best to buy tickets early.
