Interview with Actress Danielle Moné Truitt on her ONE-WOMAN PLAY “3: BLACK GIRL BLUES” playing May 19 – June 4, 2023 at the Hudson Theatre Los Angeles.

3: Black Girl Blues” is a sensational play that is a meditation on external behavior, and the forces that cause us to come clean, – all explored seamlessly by one brilliant actress.  This exciting play, produced by CMA Entertainment and Truitt Love Productions is created and performed by Truitt and written by Anthony D’Juan. It is a tale of three close friends – “Keisha,” “Jill” and “Stephanie” – who grew up together and now as adult women, are confronted with their demons. Keisha, an urban socialite, has her life crushed when she realizes her long-term boyfriend has had a child with another woman. Jill, a housewife in denial, admits to her husband’s betrayal. Stephanie, an executive in the upper-echelon world, has to face the core of her mental illness. Taken from the press release.

In Broken Story, we meet Jess, a driven young New York reporter who arrives at the Los Angeles home of murdered novelist Jane Hartman, hoping to uncover the true story behind a mysterious Hollywood crime. As she meets those closest to the victim, everyone becomes a suspect. Alibis are questioned, and motives are discovered in an effort to put the pieces of the puzzle together.

“WE’RE GONNA DIE” features a single Singer, accompanied by a full rock bad, as she shares stories about death, grief and loneliness from her life. These stories range from the mundane to the tragic, from discovering her first white hair to her father’s sudden and tragic death from lung cancer as he waited for an experimental treatment. Lee’s songs and stories demystify grief, creating a community space that provides the solace that we need to get through those difficult moments.
