Production Description
The assassination of Malcolm X—both the story we think we know and illuminating details that have seldom been shared—is brought to vivid, lyrical life in award-winning writer Marcus Gardley’s new play. Bold staging, period-style music and influences from Shakespeare's Julius Caesar come together to illuminate the story of one of America's most complex, compelling historical figures.
