Since its debut last July, Strange Fruit Redux has continued to make its mark. Strange Fruit Redux tells the story of 25-year-old visual artist Nathan Strange, who is on the verge of becoming the latest sensation in the NYC art scene. While working on his final painting, Nathan expresses his views about black culture and what it means to be black in the new millennium moments before a confrontation with NYPD. Strange Fruit Redux is 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.
In March Strange Fruit Redux played to a sold-out audience at the Downtown Urban Arts Festival. This May Strange Fruit Redux will perform at the Flying Solo Festival in Queens. Tickets are available at https://web.ovationtix.com/trs/pr/958683.
Although Strange Fruit Redux is playing at the Secret Theatre, the secret is out…NYC can’t get enough of Strange Fruit Redux!
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.
