BLACK VIRGINS ARE NOT FOR HIPSTERS Echo Brown’s solo show, Black Virgins Are Not for Hipsters, opens at The Marsh Berkeley Saturday March 26, after transferring from San Francisco where it had rave reviews. The show takes place in the hour before Echo is supposed to lose her virginity to a good-looking white hipster, and is both a love story and a startling snapshot of 21st-century American culture. A graduate of the Columbia School of Journalism, Echo has worked in the non-profit sector as a storyteller, senior investigator in allegations against the NYPD, and as a workshop leader. Now Brown is committed to pursuing creative endeavors full-time, and Black Virgins Are Not For Hipsters is her first full-length solo show. Black Virgins Are Not For Hipsters runs though April 23 with shows 8pm Thursdays and 8:30pm Saturdays at The Marsh Berkeley, 2120 Allston Way. For tickets ($20-$35 sliding scale/$55-$100 reserved), visit The Marsh online, or call 415-282 3055 between 1pm and 4pm, Monday through Friday.
