Clay, a one-man hip-hop musical written and performed by Matt Sax and directed by Eric Rosen, will be part of a new programming initiative -- LCT3 -- devoted to producing the work of emerging playwrights, directors and designers. The show will play the Duke on 42nd Street, October 6-November 8.

Clay tells the coming-of-age story of Clifford, a suburban boy who escapes his fractured family and finds a mentor in Sir John, a master of the spoken word. Clifford becomes hip-hop star Clay, but he discovers that he can't escape his past.

The production will feature sets by Meghan Raham, costumes by Emily Rebholz, lighting by Jason Lyons, and sound and orchestrations by Josh Horvath.

A second LCT3 production will follow in early 2009. For more information visit www.lct.org.
