Workin' It

Don’t call Carolyn M. Brown (left) and D.E. Womack drama queens, even if they did meet in high school and bond over their love of theater. They both felt drawn to working on stage and behind the scenes as set designers, and in 2006, the duo teamed up again to establish All in Black and White Productions. They see the company as a launching pad for promising new multicultural artists in theater, film, video, spoken word and fine arts, and a forum to challenge mainstream conventional thinking. The duo has coauthored three plays and several video shorts. Their most recent production, Flowers: A Thorny Romance Story, went from an idea conceived in a New York restaurant in 2007 to a full-length production at Center Stage NY in 2010, then on to The WorkShop Theater in July 2011 as part of the 12th Annual Midtown International Theatre Festival. Brown advises up-and-coming entrepreneurs to “know what you are good at, as well as your shortcomings, then surround yourself with skilled people to help you build your business. When someone says no, find someone who will say yes.”
