Ishmael Reed’s Play Showing at Nuyorican Poets Cafe

Ishmael Reed’s new play “The Haunting of Lin-Manuel Miranda” returns to the Nuyorican Poets Cafe this October, after a run of sold-out performances and press coverage from the New York Times, New Yorker Magazine, the Observer, the Paris Review and more. Like theater in the time of Bertolt Brecht or the WPA, Reed’s new work (under the direction of multiple AUDELCO winner Rome Neal) challenges the narrative of commercial theater and mainstream historical accounts. Reed’s play brings to the forefront those characters who are absent from “Hamilton, The Revolution”: slaves, Native Americans, indentured servants & Harriet Tubman. Performances of “The Haunting of Lin-Manuel Miranda” take place October 4-27, 2019. Visit to purchase tickets. RSVP on Facebook:
