This month, New Jersey Shakespeare Theatre presents RED VELVET.

This marks the New Jersey premiere of award-winning British playwright, Lolita Chakrabarti's true-life story of Ira Aldridge, an African-American actor and the first black man to appear as Othello on the London stage. This compelling tale of a pioneer artist from the 1800's is fascinating, heartbreaking, and immensely relevant for our day and age.
