Off – Broadway Play Black Angels over Tuskegee Perform for the Buffalo Bills

Black Angels Over Tuskegee, Layon Gray's acclaimed Off- Broadway play about the Tuskegee Airmen performed a private show for the Buffalo Bills on September 8th. The team flew the cast and crew to Buffalo to perform before its season opener against the Indianapolis Colt. Head coach Rex Ryan who has seen the play now four times is one of the play's biggest fans. "The play was as good as advertised," Ryan said. "The message was outstanding, about teamwork, the way you have to take care of each other, the way you have to go through adversity and still go out and function on a high level." Black Angels Over Tuskegee is now in its sixth year Off-Broadway at St Luke's Theatre (308 West 46th Street). Based on true events, six men explore their collective struggle with Jim Crow, their intelligence, patriotism, dreams of an inclusive fair society, and brotherhood, as they become the first African-American fighter pilots in the U.S. Army Air Forces.
