Turn Me Loose, starring Scandal’s Joe Morton, has been extended to July 17! The off-Broadway production was original set to end its run July 3rd, but has been getting so many rave reviews that it’s sticking around another two weeks.***
Check out our experience of this incredible, provocative play in our “We Were There”.
Written by Gretchen Law, directed by John Gould Rubin, and produced by John Legend, Morton brings to life the story of Dick Gregory in Turn Me Loose “a new comedic drama about the extraordinary and explosive life of Dick Gregory that shines a light on the first Black comedian to expose white audiences to racial comedy. Gregory confronted bigotry with shockingly disarming humor, marched alongside Martin Luther King, Jr., and deeply influenced comics from Richard Pryor to Chris Rock. He’s been a prolific writer, muckraker, provocateur, candidate for mayor of Chicago and for president of the United States. He was singled out by President Obama as one of his all-time favorite comedians. Experience the comic genius of Dick Gregory and the poetic final words of his mentor, slain civil rights activist, Medgar Evers: “Turn Me Loose.”
***Turn Me Loose will not be playing July 4-10 due to a previous commitment for Joe Morton.
