DUTCHMAN/TRANSit @ American Blues Theater
Experience two explosive plays in one event. First see Dutchman — one of the most important plays in 20th-century culture to take on race relations. Then, inspired by Baraka’s pivotal work, watch the world-premiere commission TRANSit. New York City Transit: humanity’s great collision place. One hot summer night, Veronica finds herself drawn to a sensitive, unpredictable street performer aboard a subway train. The rhythms of their encounter reveal more than either had planned, and soon an explosive mix of identity, sex, and betrayal is unleashed.
