Prepare for a roaring good time at the Lion Theatre (c’mon, we had to!) as Performing Arts students take the stage for their production of Stephen Adly Guirgis’ Our Lady of 121st Street.
When people go to pay their respects to beloved community activist and nun Sister Rose at Harlem’s Ortiz Funeral Home, they found that her body has been stolen from the viewing room. Waiting for her return are some of New York City’s most emotionally charged, life-challenged neighborhood characters, who begin to realize who they’ve become isn’t who they’d intended in this dark, edgy, and insightful comedy.
Directed by Dyson Professor Grant Kretchik, Our Lady of 121st Street stars students Ashley Rose Folino, Lizabeth Trimble, Dominique Fishback, Gaby Sandoval, Aubree Mullally, Daniel Rings, David Armanino, Jason Duvernan, Emmanuel Polycarpe, Clarke Bliss, Ashley Romans, Justin Hart, Niko Papastefanou, and Brandon Contreras.
