Ike Holter's new off-Broadway play, Hit the Wall, has scheduled its final performance at Greenwich Village's Barrow Street Theatre for April 28. Directed by Eric Hoff and featuring original music by Dan Lipton, the production began its run on February 19.

Hit the Wall takes place during the early morning hours of June 28, 1969 when a police raid on The Stonewall Inn — an underground gay bar in Greenwich Village just a stone's throw away from the Barrow Street Theatre itself — sparked days of violent protests, now called The Stonewall Riots.

The ensemble of Hit the Wall includes Nick Bailey, Jessica Dickey, Ben Diskant, Nathan Lee Graham, Matthew Greer, Gregory Haney, Sean Allan Krill, Rania Salem Manganaro, Jonathan Mastro, Ray Rizzo, Carolyn Michelle Smith, Arturo Soria, and Indigo Street.

Among the creative team are Lauren Helpern (set design), David Hyman (costume design), Keith Parham (lighting design), Daniel Kluger and Brandon Wolcott (sound design), J. David Brimmer (fight director), and Pat McCorkle (casting). The production stage manager is Bethany Russell.
