Save the Date 2021-04-14 America/New_York Genesis Festival of New Plays Co-presented with Hi-ARTS

A crucial pillar in Crossroads’ mission is to support the work of new and emerging Black voices as they create and develop new plays for the American theatre. This is embodied annually in the Genesis Festival of New Plays. Historically, Genesis has given our audiences the first look of work that in later seasons will find itself on the main stage, and artists take the opportunity to receive critical feedback from our audiences in conversations following their readings. They are energizing to both our audiences and the participating artists.

This year, Crossroads is thrilled to partner with Hi-ARTS. For 20 years, Hi-ARTS has consistently broken new ground, advancing urban art by empowering artists to develop bold new works, while creating a lasting and positive impact on urban communities. Details will be announced soon.
