THE APOLLO

SYNOPSIS

1519775_PRG-DOC_TheApolloKeyart_PO_v1.jp

The Apollo covers the rich history of the storied performance space over its 85 years and follows a new production of Ta- Nehisi Coates’ Between the World and Me as it comes to the theater’s grand stage. The creation of this vibrant multi-media stage show frames the way in which The Apollo explores the current struggle of black lives in America, the role that art plays in that struggle, and the broad range of African American achievement that the Apollo Theater represents.
