News   PHOTO CALL: Detroit '67, Featuring De'Adre Aziza and Brandon Dirden, at the Public Theater Dominique Morisseau's Detroit '67, a new drama set against the riots that ravaged the Motor City, began performances Feb. 26 as part of the Public Theater's Public Lab series. 

De'Adre Aziza (Women on the Verge, Passing Strange) and Brandon Dirden (The Piano Lesson) are joined by Francois Battiste, Samantha Soule and Michelle Wilson.

The Public bills the show as follows: "It's 1967 in Detroit and Motown music gets the party started. Chelle and her brother Lank transform their basement into an after-hours joint to make ends meet. But when a mysterious woman winds her way into their lives, the siblings clash over much more than family business. As their pent-up feelings erupt, so does their city, and the flames of the '67 Detroit riots engulf them all."

Here's a look at the production:
