Antoinette Nwandu's Pass Over Opens at LCT3/Lincoln Center Theater
The New York premiere stars Jon Michael Hill, Namir Smallwood, and Gabriel Ebert.
Lincoln Center Theater's LCT3 production of Pass Over opened on Monday, June 18, at the Claire Tow Theater. The New York premiere of Antoinette Nwandu's play runs through July 15 under the direction of Danya Taymor.
In Pass Over, Moses and Kitch stand around on the corner — talking smack, passing the time, and hoping that today a miracle will come. A provocative mash-up of Waiting for Godot and the Exodus saga, Pass Over exposes the unquestionable human spirit of young black men who dream about a promised land they've yet to find.
Pass Over stars Gabriel Ebert (Time and the Conways), Jon Michael Hill (Elementary), and Namir Smallwood (Pipeline). The creative team includes sets by Wilson Chin, costumes by Sarafina Bush, lighting by Marcus Doshi, and sound by Justin Ellington.
