Paul Robeson, September 5-15
Opening Night at The New Brunswick Performing Arts Center
Be a part of this historic story and the first patrons to experience Crossroads Theatre Company's new home at the state-of-the-art New Brunswick Performing Arts Center.
The glorious and complicated life of scholar/athlete/activist Paul Robeson is brought to life on stage in honor of the 100th Anniversary of his graduation from Rutgers University. Paul Robeson is a powerful look at the many facets of Robeson—the man and the celebrity. The play stars veteran Broadway performer Nathaniel Stampley Jr. in the title role.
Tracing significant events of Robeson's life, the play reveals how he faces the dynamics of the prevalent presence of racism in the early part of the 20th century. Triumphing over this struggle makes Robeson a modern day hero as he used his influence and stature to enlighten those around him.
