A Sucker EMCEE

National Black Theatre Presents


Written and performed by


Craig 'muMs' Grant

Directed by Jenny Koons

Music by Rich Medina

APRIL 26 - 30, 2017

Wednesday - Friday : 7:30pm

Saturday : 2:00 & 7:30 / Sunday : 4:00pm

Infused with hip-hop, slam poetry and personal recollections, this one-man show charts the ups and downs of muMs’ incredible journey, from growing up in the Bronx to starring on one of HBO’s biggest shows. A life set against the backdrop of the birth of hip-hop, this is the story of a man looking for his spotlight and finding it in the most unlikely of places.

A Sucker Emcee was originally produced by Labyrinth Theater Company (Mimi O’Donnell, Artistic Director; Danny Feldman, Managing Director) in September 2014.
