Troy Anthony and Friends, presented in association with MTF
Don't miss Troy Anthony's Joe's Pub debut, in a double bill with fellow groundbreaking writers from MTF’s People of Color Roundtable including Jerome Ellis, Michelle J. Rodriguez, Rona Siddiqui, and Kirya Traber & Sissi Liu! Troy will present songs from THE RIVER IS ME (lyrics and book by Sukari Jones), DARK GIRL CHRONICLES (play by Nia Witherspoon), as well as brand new music from his upcoming music theater piece ANTIOCH MASS, premiering at The Shed in May 2020. Come and experience an evening of affirmation, reflection, and liberation as we all lift our voices in song. This is not a concert. This is a celebration service. You will not leave the way that you came.
