Directed and developed by Liesl Tommy, with choreography by Millicent Johnnie, the production will run off-Broadway from November 1 through December 4. Opening night is set for November 14.Universes comprises of Mildred Ruiz-Sapp, Steven Sapp and William Ruiz aka Ninja.The award-winning ensemble known for their fusion of theater, poetry, jazz, hip-hop, politics, down home blues and Spanish boleros, makes their Public Theater premiere with a new work about the complicated legacies of the Black Panther Party and the Young Lords Org/Party.Based on dozens of interviews with members of these groundbreaking, society-changing groups, Party People imagines a present-day reunion at an art opening curated by two young counter culturalists; but the curators themselves have complex relationships with the Party members, who fought injustice and provided free food and medical care for their communities—often at the expense of the people who loved them most. Old wounds and generational divides collide in this multi-media theatrical event about the price of being a revolutionary, and what it means for those who come after.center_img Related Shows Show Closed This production ended its run on Dec. 11, 2016last_img read more
