Get To Know The Show: THE NEW COLOSSUS
THE NEW COLOSSUS director and co-writer, Tim Robbins, joins a panel to discuss the production, which launches its national tour in Charlotte, and how it connects to immigration and refugee communities around the nation. Local leaders from within those communities will join to discuss these issues as they relate to Charlotte specifically. Tickets are free, but space is limited.
In THE NEW COLOSSUS, twelve actors from all over the world are telling their ancestors' stories, all woven into a single narrative about escaping an oppressive homeland, drawn to the beacon above Ellis Island. An intensely physical production, with live music, poetry and kinetic movement, THE NEW COLOSSUS is an homage to the strength, resilience and dignity of the immigrants and refugees that risked everything to find a better life. Director and co-writer Tim Robbins sets the piece in different eras between 1864 and the modern day, celebrating the courage and character of those who came to this country over the last 300 years. Post-show talkbacks occur at the conclusion of every performance.
