B2: Hotlist! #60

Greetings Community,

So much is going on in NYC at the moment and so many worthwhile shows are up and running and some opening soon.  Don’t forget to support these incredible Artists and productions by purchasing your tickets in advance.  Let’s keep great theatre and music alive.  See you all behind the lights. 

As Always,


“SEED” A New Play by Radha Blank

Directed by Niegel Smith

Presented by  Classical Theater of Harlem  and  Hip-Hop Theater Festival

Burnt-out social worker Anne Colleen Simpson decides to leave the field on a high note, with a book detailing her career, but when Chee-Chee, a gifted twelve-year-old from the ‘projects’ collides into her life, she’s forced to confront his young mother and the shadows of her past. Anne and Chee-Chee develop an unlikely friendship that leads to an explosive encounter threatening both their futures.

Infused with the vibrant rhythm and verse of Hip-Hop culture, Seed weaves through the fault lines of a gentrified Harlem, begging the question: How far are you willing to go to protect the future of a community and its children?
