Peter Callender (Artistic Director of the African American Shakespeare Company and the director of American Stage’s hits JITNEY and JOE TURNER’S COME AND GONE) WINNER! -TONY AWARD -BEST REVIVAL OF A PLAY Starring Fanni Green (JOE TURNER’S COME & GONE) WE THE PEOPLE…WILL NOT HAVE OUR DREAMS DEFERRED Lorraine Hansberry’s groundbreaking family drama is the first play in our American Legacy series. Dedicated to modern classics that lend perspective to stories from our past, this series seeks to draw a connection between our culture’s history and the events of today. In pursuit of the American Dream, the dynamic Younger family wrestles with the push to assimilate into a white Chicago neighborhood, and the pull of their cultural roots. These opposing forces both unite and divide the family, as each grapple with the social issues that challenge their identity – and the personal choices that will determine their future. This story of hope and inspiration remains universally relevant more than 60 years after it first hit Broadway. “…powerful and beautiful and mesmerizing and tender.” -Washington Post Price: http://americanstage.org/single-tickets/ -Wednesdays 7pm: $39 -Thursdays 8pm: $39 -Fridays 8pm: $49 -Saturday Matinees 3pm: $39 -Saturday Evenings 8pm: $49 -Sunday Matinees 3pm: $39 Ask about our Young American Initiative.
