FREIGHT: THE FIVE INCARNATIONS OF ABEL GREENE
October 19, 2017 @ 8:00 pm - November 19, 2017 @ 9:30 pm$25 – $45
From October 19 to November 19, Woodie King Jr.’s New Federal Theatre, in association with Castillo Theatre, will present the Off-Broadway debut of “FREIGHT: the five incarnations of Abel Green” by Howard L. Craft, directed by Joseph Megel. It is starring J. Alphonse Nicholson, at Castillo Theater, 543 West 42nd Street. The play depicts an African American “Everyman” who exists in five dimensions of America’s modern era. In each incarnation–as minstrel, cult leader, FBI informant, struggling actor and fallen mortgage broker–he is trapped between the American Dream and the American Nightmare. We witness the trials of a simple man trying to make decisions that will allow him to survive in what the great African-American poet Claude McKay called “this cultured hell that tests my youth.”
