LOS ANGELES -- On the ground floor of a shuttered health clinic several miles north of Hollywood, Zach Braff -- John "J.D." Dorian on NBC's hospital comedy Scrubs -- is spending an alarming amount of time deciding whether it would be funny to wear a "onesie" in a scene set in his bedroom. As an extra mills about wearing sneakers with foot-high soles (so he can stand in for a taller actor), Braff is discovering that, funny or not, the oversized pajamas are wildly uncomfortable. "I'm not accustomed to being interrupted," he says archly, pretending to admonish a staffer -- and poking fun at his status as the first among equals on the ensemble show.

"somebody/anybody/sing a black girl's song/bring her out/to know herself," a character says in the first few minutes of Ntozake Shange's "for colored girls who have considered suicide/when the rainbow is enuf." When Shange's play debuted in 1975, its song was a rallying cry, an anthem, a voice singing for the unsung urban black woman. Twenty-five years later, in director/choreographer George Faison's production at Center Stage, the voice may no longer be as startlingly fresh, but it remains insistent and strong.
