David Alan Grier
Comic and actor David Alan Grier first introduced audiences to his goofy, yet sharp sense of humor on In Living Color and in the cult film I’m Gonna Git You Sucka. But even before he was cracking wise on screens big and small, Grier was receiving acclaim on stage. The Yale graduate received a Tony nomination for his portrayal of Jackie Robinson in The First, and starred as James “Thunder” Early in the Broadway production of Dreamgirls. After time spent appearing on television and in movies, penning a book (Barack Like Me: The Chocolate-Covered Truth) and learning salsa (Dancing With the Stars), he returns to the stage to share his unique comedic voice.
From the street, the Wilbur Theatre looks almost like it could be a stately old family home. In fact, the Colonial-style building was always a theater, but its exterior details were copied directly from Beacon Hill’s Thomas Bailey Midrich House when it was built in 1914. Even in the elegant auditorium, there’s a sense of homey intimacy. Seating nestles right up to the stage so audiences can feel every note produced by the musicians and hear the tiny gears turning behind comedians’ foreheads as they improvise.
