12 refugees. 12 languages. 12 eras.1 border.
In THE NEW COLOSSUS, twelve actors from all over the world are telling their ancestors' stories, all woven into a single narrative about escaping an oppressive homeland, drawn to the beacon above Ellis Island. An intensely physical production, with live music, poetry and kinetic movement, THE NEW COLOSSUS is an homage to the strength, resilience and dignity of the immigrants and refugees that risked everything to find a better life. Director and co-writer Tim Robbins sets the piece in different eras between 1864 and the modern day, celebrating the courage and character of those who came to this country over the last 300 years.
Post-show talkbacks occur after every performance. Tim Robbins is scheduled to appear at talkbacks after each performance with the exception of performaces on Sunday, Feb. 2. *Subject to change.
