This unbelievably true story begins when Brooklyn’s own hip hop theater innovator andspoken word champion, Bryonn Bain (60 Minutes, The Village Voice, BET’s My Two Cents), is wrongly imprisoned in NYC jails — while studying law at Harvard. Weaving together the voices of over 40 characters into a one-man tour de force, Lyrics From Lockdown, executive produced by Gina and Harry Belafonte, is receiving extraordinary reviews around the world. A groundbreaking multimedia production, this critically acclaimed show uses a live band and video DJ, fusing hip hop, theater, spoken word poetry, rhythm and blues, calypso and classical music, to tell a provocative story exposing racial profiling and wrongful incarceration in a nation imprisoning more people than any other in the world.
Group tickets are available at a discounted rate through Miller Theatre. There are a limited number of sponsored tickets available for available for organized trips for young people and those directly impacted by mass incarceration.
All other tickets are $20.
