What happened to Mr. Joy?
One of the most acclaimed, new playwrights and performers of our time, Daniel Beaty returns to the Forbes center to explore that question and others related to race and class in his explosive solo play, Mr. Joy, which premiered at Lincoln Center Theater in 2013. Beaty plays all nine Harlem residents whose lives are disrupted when they discover Mr. Joy, a Chinese immigrant who has run a shoe repair shop in the neighborhood for decades, does not open for business as usual. Mr. Joy's customers, ranging from 11-year-old Clarissa, a budding shoe designer, to Bessie, a "gansta granny," reflect on the shop owner's impact in this moving exploration of one community's efforts to heal in order to dream again.

Deadline to purchase tickets is August 8, 2015.
