This Elton John-Tim Rice pop opera, inspired by Verdi's classic opera, tells the story of enslaved Nubian princess Aida, who falls for the captain of the guard, Radames, who is betrothed to the Egyptian princess who is Aida's mistress. Confused? Good. Intrigued? Even better.

Iron Gate Theater

December 6 and 7

Regardless of our age or our life circumstances, we all have to make the conscious decision to grow up. It's imperative that we own up to our adult responsibilities so that we can contribute to the communities that raised us. Prince Ikenna has to make this commitment as he comes of age amidst one of those politically hostile situations created by adults that could really be solved by uncomplicated, childlike thinking. This is not only the story of his individual maturation, but also that of a nation that must glean direction from their past in order to propel themselves into a more positive future.

Platt Performing Arts Center

"This electrifying drama about the gritty lives of two street savvy hustlers resonated through the theatre world. The New York Times led the way, calling it “a thrilling comic drama…dazzlingly written!” Lincoln and Booth bear the weight of black history—and the names of white men, given to them by their father as a joke before he (like their mother) walked away. Left to their wiles and their bravado, the brothers never stop conning the suckers on the street and, ultimately, each other in this darkly funny hit about family grievances, wounds—and healing."

The African Company Presents: Richard the Third by Carlyle Brown

Produced by Samantha Osborne
Directed by Candace Logan

Servants by day, the African Company, a company of free black actors passionate about creating art out of their own experience, rehearse Shakespeare’s Richard III by night. Bu when the Company dares to open its show the same time that New York City’s premiere theater opens its own Richard III, things go awry and the racial tensions of 1821 America are felt.
