The August Wilson was electric Wednesday evening as audience members gave Antoinette Chinonye Nwandu's Pass Over standing ovation after standing ovation. Starting when the playwright entered the building, through several curtain call bows, Pass Over set the standard for Broadway's return, as the first play since Broadway shut down.
Learn more about Pass Over and buy tickets for their limited run ending October 10th.
In PASS OVER, Antoinette Chinonye Nwandu’s "powerful and provocative" (Arifa Akbar, The Guardian) new play, Moses and Kitch talk smack, pass the time, and hope that maybe today will be different. As they dream of their promised land, a stranger wanders into their space and disrupts their plans. Evoking heartbreak, hope, and joy over its 85 minutes, PASS OVER crafts everyday profanities into poetic and humorous riffs, illuminating the unquestionable human spirit of young men looking for a way out.
Audience members had to provide proof of vaccination to enter the building and wear a mask while indoors.
Playwright Antoinette Chinonye Nwandu & Director Danya Taymour received a standing ovation as they entered the orchestra.
Following their first preview on Broadway, Pass Over threw a block party and celebrated all night. Enjoy photos from their curtain call and block party!
