Real People. Real Lives. Real Theater - a limited encore engagement of Ping Chong + Company’s critically-acclaimed Generation NYZ

From East New York to West Harlem and from the South Bronx to Far Rockaway, the cast, ranging in age from 19–23, represents and celebrates their Black, Mexican-American, Puerto Rican, Caribbean, South Asian, and European culture and heritage.

Through bold honesty and humor, intertwined with the pulse of New York City, they share the challenges of their past and hopes for their future. Their personal stories tackle some of the most pressing topics of today: depression, gender identity, sexuality, homelessness, immigration, bullying, and domestic violence.

Quotation Mark

“Of the gifts I never expected to receive from the visionary artist Ping Chong, the top one would be this: the very best reason for resisting the current administration. Look on that picture, and on this: Seven youngsters, smiling, serious, full of hope, eager to get on with their lives and better themselves, without forgetting who they are and where they came from. I am happy to know these people. The America I live in is proud of them.”
