Presented by New Hazlett Theater 2016/2017 CSA Performance Series
June 1, 2017

“When I was 25, a therapist told me that I was retarded.”

Kalopsia (kal-op-see-uh) is the delusion of things being more beautiful than what they are.  Both courageous and comic, this daring new musical takes a look inside the world of mental illness in the black community.  Kalopsia is a no-holds-barred journey into a surreal world of music, glam, faith, and healing.
