Yes, it really is that good. A show about young rebels grabbing and shaping the future of an unformed country, "Hamilton" is making its own resonant history by changing the language of musicals.

Why See The Low Road?

Bruce Norris returns with a new work!

Clybourne Park and The Pain and the Itch playwright Bruce Norris makes a welcome return to the Public Theater, with his new drama that takes place in the 18th century and examines the very human cost of equality. Helmed by Michael Greif, the four-time Tony nominee and three-time Obie winnin director of Dear Evan Hansen and Next to Normal, Norris's morality play takes a sideways look at capitalism during the time of slavery, and the flawed thinking behind The American Dream, especially when built on the backs of slaves. Certain to start discussion and even a little controversy, Norris' play makes its New York premiere in February for a two-month engagement.

What to expect

No stranger in tackling issues such as racism and inequality, The Low Road follows Norris' 2011 Tony-winning hit play Clybourne Park, in which a white community in 1950's Chicago frets about the African-American family about to move in. Fast-forward to the present day, and the same house represents very different demographics. Climbing through the looking-glass of Lorraine Hansberry's classic A Raisin in the Sun, these contemporary characters explode into caustic comedy to reveal how far our ideas of race and gentrification have changed - or have they?

The Low Road is his ambitious new play that features a cast of 16 in a staggering 50 roles, and sets out to challenge the basic beliefs upon which the American nation and the economy were built.
