Lend Me a Tenor

During the 1994-1995 season, Nomadic Theatre hosted a production of Lend Me a Tenor, a show that traditionally uses black face. Board 41 (2022-2023) discovered this previous production and is working to have critical conversations to provide the Georgetown theater community with sufficient knowledge of Nomadic's history with racism. 

Accessing  Show Material

Nomadic became aware of this production through a photo of the cast in which an actor is in blackface. That photo is now in the Lauinger Library's archives and can be accessed via the following steps:

  1. Email GU Archivist , requesting to see the photo

    1. Identify as: University Archives Photographic Files: Drama: Nomadic Theatre: 1994-1995: Lend Me a Tenor: GTA 20220829

    2. “nomadictheatre photograph from the 1990s” will also work

  2. Establish a date and time
