Through the Night – City Theater
This kinetic one-man show tells six intersecting stories about what it means to be a black man in America today. Equal parts poetry and soul, this virtuosic feat of acting portrays a range of eclectic characters – a precocious 10-year-old boy, an overweight bishop, a college student escaping the projects, and more. Each unforgettable voice reveals the hope, courage, and determination we all need to make it through the night. The New York Times calls Through the Night “a thing of beauty.”

When: Through Sunday, Feb. 5.

Where: City Theater Mainstage, 1300 Bingham St, Pittsburgh, PA
