Tickets are now on sale for the New York premiere of Ike Holter's Hit the Wall, a drama based on the historical Stonewall riots in New York City. Directed by Eric Hoff, the new play will begin performances on February 19, starring Sean Allan Krill, Nathan Lee Graham and Gregory Haney. Opening night is set for March 10 at off-Broadway’s Barrow Street Theatre.
In the early hours of June 28, 1969, a routine police raid at the Stonewall Inn, a popular underground gay bar in Greenwich Village, sparked a full-scale riot. Violent protests and street demonstrations known as the Stonewall Riots continued for the next several days, bringing a group of unlikely revolutionaries out onto the frontlines of history, and igniting one of the most influential political and social movements of the 20th century.
In addition to Krill as A-Gay, Graham as Carson and Haney as Mika, Hit the Wall stars Matthew Greer as Cop, Nick Bailey as Newbie, Jessica Dickey as Madeline, Ben Diskant as Cliff, Rania Salem Manganaro as Peg, Carolyn Michelle Smith as Roberta, Arturo Soria as Tano, and featuring Indigo Street and Ray Rizzo.
Hit the Wall includes original music and musical supervision by Dan Lipton, set design by Lauren Helpern, costume design by David Hyman, lighting design by Keith Parham, sound design by Daniel Kluger and Brandon Wolcott and fight direction by J. David Brimmer.
