Don’t Bother Me, I Can’t Cope is a musical revue focused on the African-American experience with an important place in theater history. Its director, Vinnette Carroll, was the first Black woman to direct a Broadway show; its trailblazing composer, Micki Grant, was the first woman to write the book, music, and lyrics of a Broadway show. The Grammy award-winning music is a vibrant mixture of gospel, jazz, funk, soul, and calypso paired with spoken word and dance.
