Following two years of digital performances, Uncensored will return to in-person performances at the Robert W. Wilson MCC Theater Space. The show is slated to run April 22-24 and follows the theme of connection and isolation.
Co-directed by Jennifer Shirley and Kevin Carillo, this annual production invites New York City teens to "speak their truth" on the MCC stage after participating in the Youth Company Performance Lab. The show features student-written monologues, scenes, music, and ensemble pieces.
Featured performers include Amani Parbolus, Omar Haidara, Cole Iturregui Shirley, Destiny Hooker, Eleanor “LouLou” Hubner, Gabrielys Rosa-Lozada, Grace Brockington, Jazlyn Claudio, Jociel Tambone, Natoya Murray, and Zelia Ryan-Young, with Daryl Embry as the scenic and lighting designer.
"It's a joyous and momentous event to be back in-person for Uncensored," shares Carillo. "This determined and hopeful company is investigating ways to form connection and explore our past years of isolation through collaborative art-making in our ever-changing hybrid landscape. We are beyond thrilled for their work to be seen and their voices to be heard."
Performances are April 22 at 7:30 PM, April 23 at 2:30 PM and 7:30 PM, and April 24 at 2:30 PM. Tickets are pay-what-you-can.
