Uncle Tom v. Uncle Sam

In “Uncle Tom versus Uncle Sam,” a satirical, socio-political play about fighting cultural and identity crises presented by Anthony Anderson of ABC’s “Black-ish,” Shawn and Margaux are a newlywed interracial couple living in gentrified Bed-Stuy. Unable to conceive, they decide to adopt, but only, according to Shawn, if the child is white. He argues, “If I can relieve myself of the constant worry of my child being taken away from me at any moment, at the whim of those who don’t care one bit about Black Lives Matter, then that’s what I’ll do!” Leonard Nimoy Thalia at Symphony Space, 2537 Broadway at W. 95th St. Aug 5-6, 12-13, 19-20 & 26-27, 8 p.m.; Aug. 7, 14, 21 & 28, 3 p.m. Tickets are $30, $25 for students & seniors, $15 for children at symphonyspace.org.
