About this show

In a unique blend of music, poetry and dance, Daniel Beaty brings us six show-stopping characters-from Eric, a budding child scientist, to The Bishop, the leader of a mega church, to his son Isaac, a corporate executive. The stories of these African-American men collide one evening in an unforgettable look at identity, relationships and, above all, our human connections. The author of Emergence-SEE!, Daniel Beaty won the 2007 OBIE Award for Outstanding Writing and Performance and dazzled Arena audiences last summer with a sold-out run of the show. He returns to Arena with a talented cast of six actors, as well as Oz Scott, who originally directed For Colored Girls... on Broadway, and Daniel Bernard Roumain, a Haitian-American composer who fuses classical violin with a variety of unlikely soundscapes. Don't miss this chance to be exhilarated by a new voice in the American Theater-one whose writing is extolled by The New York Times as "compassionate and precise."
