Match Broadway

From playwright Stephen Belber (Match, Tape, The Laramie Project) comes a provocative new drama that pits social responsibility against personal redemption. When Delaware journalist Rick Dayne meets death row inmate Darius McReele, the articles Rick writes eventually lead to Darius's exoneration from an 18 year old murder conviction. Darius's sympathetic past and magnetic personality make him a darling of the lecture circuit, leading to national attention and political viability. With his past and future in the balance, Darius walks the line, as Rick seeks to determine which way he'll ultimately fall.

It was fitting that Manipuri dance was chosen to commemorate India Independence Day, because during British colonial rule the dances were ridiculed as savage, immoral and outdated. Fortunately, thanks to India's independence, the help of activists, scholars and performers revitalizing ancient yet timeless traditions, and organizations like Battery Dance Festival, Manipuri dance can continue to thrive not only in India but on the world's stage. Lord Krishna must be pleased!
