MCC Theater Adds Additional Week for Donja R. Love's SOFT

MCC Theater announced today an additional extension for the World Premiere production of soft by Donja R. Love (one in two) and directed by Whitney White (On Sugarland). Last extended through July 10, soft will now run through July 17, 2022 in the Susan & Ronald Frankel Theater at The Robert W. Wilson MCC Theater Space (511 W 52nd Street New York, NY 10019).


In soft, flowers are in full bloom-in Mr. Isaiah's classroom, in the halls of the correctional boarding school where he teaches, and in the depths of his students' imaginations. After one boy dies by suicide, Mr. Isaiah is committed to saving the students he teaches from a world that tries to crush their softness.

Biko Eisen-Martin (In the Southern Breeze) as Mr. Isaiah, Dharon Jones (West Side Story) as Antoine, Essence Lotus as Dee, Travis Raeburn (The Odyssey) as Bashir, Shakur Tolliver (Passing Strange) as Kevin, Dario Vazquez (Fools in Love) as Jamal, and Ed Ventura (The Siblings Play) as Eddie.

Jean (Our Dear Dead Drug Lord), lighting design by Cha See (Exception to the Rule), sound design by Germán Martínez (Fruma Sarah: Waiting in the Wings), original music by Mauricio Escamilla (Nike, or We Don't Need Another Hero) and fight direction by
