MAJOR NEW YORK REVIVAL: Yolanda Brooks Productions and the ATA revive the critically-acclaimed "MANDELA." Written by Yolanda Brooks (a local NYC civil servant) and John Ruiz Miranda (a retired 9/11 NYC fireman), this compelling drama with many lighthearted moments swept the BroadwayWorld awards recently so the ATA brings it back to its Cullum Theatre. Featuring details never before revealed, MANDELA unveils the gripping story of Nelson Mandela in a world forever changed by apartheid. Confrontational and uncompromising, the play relates Nelson and Winnie Mandela's pursuit for freedom from oppression in South Africa. This play pushes the envelope by cleverly enacting how the U.S. and South Africa mirrored each other; as protesting Blacks in each country suffered similar social injustices while fighting against oppression; and how the CIA played a mysterious role in Mr. Mandela's capture. "At this tense time across the country," says Executive Producer Yolanda Brooks, "the show's highly sensitive subjects, are even more timely and relevant, making its presence a moving experience for all." Geared for the socially-conscious, MANDELA delivers a powerful and timely message in a racially and socially inclusive manner. The multi-cultural cast is comprised of native African, African-American, Caucasian, and Latino actors. February 3 - 19. https://ofcf.ticketleap.com/mandela2023/
