The world premiere of Marco Ramirez's new play The Royale opened May 5 at the Center Theatre Group's Kirk Douglas Theatre.
Directed by Daniel Aukin, the cast includes Robert Gossett, Diarra Oni Kilpatrick, David St. Louis, Keith Szarabajka and Desean Terry.
"In The Royale, set in the boxing world of the early 1900s, Jay 'The Sport' Jackson has talent and confidence and wants what he feels is owed to him: a shot at the championship," press notes state. "Even though blacks were not offered bouts with white boxers, Jay wants to be the first African American crowned undisputed heavyweight champion of the world, and he is pushing hard to have that dream realized, no matter the consequences."
Tail! Spin! is the hysterical new comedy drawn verbatim from the leaked e-mails, raunchy texts and tell-tale tweets that brought down politicians Anthony Weiner, Mark Sanford, Larry Craig and Mark Foley. With SNL Alum Rachel Dratch! Only $55!
