Alumni to present new show for the Lyceum Series


Florida A&M alumni T’Keyah Crystal Keymáh and Bryan C. Jones will debut their new show, “Sellout!,” as part of the Lyceum Series.

“Sellout!” follows two professionals as they struggle to gain success. Both characters have a different idea on what success is, whether it is making it big or making a difference.

“I love entertaining, but when I work this hard, I also want to create something of substance,” Keymáh said in a press release dated April 3. “Black people in America always deal with the question of whether success for us means selling out … I am very grateful to have FAMU’s support and excited to work with Bryan again.”

Keymáh, an actress, director, writer and producer, has performed on stage, television and in films. She is known for her roles in “That’s So Raven,” the Emmy Award-winning show “In Living Color” and “Cosby.” She also directed the world premier of “Route 66: Finding Nat King Cole.”

Jones is best known for his one-man show “AIDS – and I Die Slowly,” which has been toured around the U.S. for three years. Jones, an HIV/AIDS advocate and activist, performed his show at the 2012 International AIDS Conference.

Tickets for the performance are on sale at box office located at the Al Lawson Jr. Multipurpose Center. General public tickets are $12 and student tickets are $5.
