In July 2015 STRANGE FRUIT REDUX exploded onto the off-off Broadway landscape making its world premiere at Manhattan Repertory Theatre‘s 10th Anniversary Event. It returned to NYC in November 2015 participating in the Midtown International Theatre Festival. Our founder Afrika Brown has declared that 2016 is the year of Strange Fruit!
In February STRANGE FRUIT REDUX traveled to Winston-Salem, NC and participated in The Ruby Slipper Fringe Festival. On the 29th STRANGE FRUIT REDUX returns to NYC for a special performance at the 14th Annual Downtown Urban Arts Festival. That’s right FAMERS; STRANGE FRUIT REDUX is back in town for one night only at HERE Arts Center!
HERE Arts Center is located at 145 Avenue of the Americas; show time is at 7 p.m. Written by Afrika Brown and starring Bryant L. Lewis, STRANGE FRUIT REDUX centers on a pivotal day in the life of Nathan Strange, a 25-year-old artist from Brooklyn, as he is poised to ascend to the top of the NYC art scene; it’s a series of poem monologues mixed with music and sio-political, pop culture sound bites geared to show the fears and frustrations of the modern day black man. Tickets for the 29th are still available and can be purchased at http://www.dutfnyc.com/.
See you at the show; you know F.A.M.E NYC will be there!
