A knockout award-winning new play inspired by real-world boxer Jack Johnson will come to life on our Copaken Stage before going on tour throughout the community. More details will be announced shortly.
From playwright Marco Ramirez (Orange is the New Black, Daredevil) comes a story inspired by real-world boxer Jack Johnson who, as a Black man at the height of the Jim Crow era, became the heavyweight champion of the world. A knockout award-winning new play and winner of two Obie Awards, an Outer Critics Circle Award, a Drama Desk Award, and multiple others, this tour-de-force sold out houses in London, New York, and LA. The Royale is an electrifying adrenaline rush that shows us the human cost of making history.
