UNIVERSESThe Revolution will be LIVE !!!!

Celebrating 22 Years



UNIVERSES is a national Ensemble Theater Company, of multi-disciplined writers and performers, who fuse theater, poetry, dance, jazz, hip hop, politics, down home blues and Spanish boleros to create moving, challenging and entertaining works for the stage. The group breaks the traditional theatrical bounds to create its own brand of theater.

Founded in The Bronx, New York in 1995, the members of UNIVERSES came together in the urban poetry and music scene of the late 1990s; quickly moving through the “down town” performance scene to build a home for themselves in American Theatre.

In their 21+ years, they have taken their original pieces around the world, electrifying crowds and sparking conversation about just what it means to be an American citizen: right here and right now. The group breaks the bounds of traditional theater to create their own brand, inviting old and new generations of theater crafters as well as theater goers and new comers to Revolutionize American Theater.
