SECOND STAGE THEATER UPTOWN SERIES PRESENTS

53% OF

Written by Steph Del Rosso

Directed by Tiffany Nichole Greene

 

Final Performance on July 10, 2022 Off-Broadway at Second Stage Theater’s uptown home, the McGinn/Cazale Theater (Broadway at 76th Street)

The president is coming to town, and the good ladies of Bethlehem, PA are beside themselves planning to give him a hero’s welcome; later, their husbands drink and posture during his swearing in.  And in Brooklyn, a group of 20-something white women gather to plan . . . a revolution?  Or is it a ritual to absolve their own guilt? 53% OF shines a spotlight on the status quo and shakes up our perceived notions of who calls themselves good and who pleads ignorance.

The full creative team for 53% OF includes scenic design by Emmie Finckel, costume design by Lux Haac, lighting design by Mextly Couzin, sound design and original music by Jane Shaw, and casting by Karyn Casl, CSA of The Telsey Office.
