EMERGENCY!: Written and performed by Obie Award winning playwright and Russell Simmons Def Poetry alumnus, Daniel KOA Beaty, EMERGENCY! is a captivating theatre experience that begins when a slave ship emerges from the depths of the Hudson River in contemporary times. Funny, thought provoking, and always entertaining, Beaty performs over forty characters that together unearth the many meanings of freedom across Black America. "He (Beaty) moves with the easy grace of a man attuned to the rhetoric impulse that links music and poetry"---The New York Times. Emergency! is presented as part of the Fall Crossroads Festival Theatre by Crossroads Theatre Company and Voza River's New Heritage Theatre Group.
