Misty (Off-Broadway, The Shed, 2023) | Playbill



Fusing live music, spoken word, and absurdist comedy, Misty is an exhilarating journey through a city in flux, transporting audiences to the streets of gentrifying London in an exploration of the pressures and expectations that come with being an artist in our time.

In a performance that is part poem, part concert, part confession, Olivier Award–nominee Arinzé Kene—in his US stage debut—self-consciously wrestles with cultural representation and identity politics as they pertain to a new play he has been commissioned to write.
