We’re proud to announce that our friend and client Roscoe Orman is back for an extended run of “12 Angry Men”.
The Center for Arts & Culture at Bedford Stuyvesant Restoration Corporation in partnership with The New Press present: 12 Angry Men: Theatrical Presentation – It launches the 2015-2016 Billie Holiday Theatre Season: Saturday | November 14, 2015 | 8PM Sunday | November 15, 2015 | 2PM & 7PM Monday | November 16, 2015 | 8PM Tuesday | November 17, 2015 | 8PM Wednesday | November 18, 2015 | 8PM Thursday | November 19, 2015 | 8PM Friday | November 20, 2015 | 8PM.
12 Angry Men is urgent, moving, and timely, revealing some pointed truths about our nation. A collective of renowned actors will represent a dozen African-American men from across the United States and their personal stories of being racially profiled. The reading includes original projections by renowned artist and graphic designer Hollis King. This event is part of Project Protest: The Art of Revolution, an initiative by The Center for Arts & Culture at Bedford Stuyvesant Restoration Corporation, which takes an unflinching look at how people and communities of African descent have responded to issues of inequality and social injustice through protests. The Center for Arts & Culture promotes the rich legacy of the African and Caribbean Diaspora, while using the arts as a vehicle for creative place-making and community enrichment. There will be a pre-show lobby conversation before each performance, for matinee from 12:30pm to 1:30PM, for evening 7PM performance from 5:30PM to 6:30PM, and for evening 8PM performances from 6:30PM to 7:30PM.
