This outstanding one-man show by Kahlil Ashanti tells the true story of his hilarious experience as a member of a military entertainment troupe, Tops in Blue. As Ashanti begins a new life in the U.S. Air Force, a shocking revelation forces his attention home to face a childhood he’s trying to leave behind. Twenty-three unforgettable characters guide you through this incredible true tale of survival and redemption, all experienced through Ashanti’s rapid-fire physical talent and comedy.
