What is a token theatre friend? It can mean being the token person of color in a play who serves no other purpose than to support the (white) main character (see also: sassy best friend, magical Negro). And it can refer to the experience of being the only person of color in a white theatre-going audience. It can also mean being the one friend in your social group who loves theatre—the one they turn to for advice on what shows to see or for leads on tickets. Diep Tran and Jose Solís‏ are that friend in their personal life. And they want to be that friend for you. Twice a month, they will interview artists that they’re excited about (on their YouTube channel) and review shows (on their podcast).
