Directed by Tony Award nominee Sheryl Kaller, performances are scheduled for May 12-June 2.

The play, according to press notes, "revolves around Mr. Joy, a Chinese American immigrant who has run a shoe shop in the heart of Harlem for the past 25 years when an unexpected occurrence causes several of his customers to reflect on the impact he has had on their lives through their shoes. What has happened to this community's joy and what will it take to reclaim it?"

Mr. Joy is presented by Riverside Theatre and the New Heritage Theatre.

The Riverside Theatre is located at 91 Claremont Ave. (bet. 120th & 122nd Sts.) in Morningside Heights.

Admission is $25 for adults, $20 for seniors. Tickets can be purchased online at www.theriversidetheatre.org, by phone at (212) 870-6784 or in person at the box office.
