DO MORE: NEW PLAYS
APRIL 29 – MAY 1 at THE CONNELLY THEATER, NEW YORK CITY
Curated by Associate Artistic Director Zachary Elkind, DO MORE: NEW PLAYS features five new plays that interrogate and explode the idea of a “classic” itself and will run April 29 – May 1, at The Connelly Theater. This series will support the Broadway Advocacy Coalition (BAC), a Tony Award-winning organization building the capacity of individuals, organizations, and communities to dismantle the systems that perpetuate racism through the power of storytelling and the leadership of people directly affected.
