***VIP INCLUDES A MEET & GREET AND PREFERRED SEATING. THE MEET & GREET STARTS PROMPTLY AT 5:30PM!

After 4 great years, this show will stand as the final Strivers Row NYC Summer Showcase.

The Strivers Row presents their annual summer poetry showcase with a special musical guest. Joshua Bennett, Carvens Lissaint, Alysia Harris, Zora Howard and Miles Hodges will grace the stage once again to deliver the soul bearing, outspoken, intense and prolific performances they have become known for. With a spotless reputation of presenting intense imagery and a melange of metaphors, be prepared to snap your fingers all night long.

The Strivers Row artists are a performance collective born from the collision of passion and page. Assembled in the Fall of 2010, the troupe has already, on an individual level, performed on stages ranging from The NAACP Image Awards to Broadway's Amsterdam theater to Poetry Africa to The Sundance Film Festival to President Obama's Evening of Music and Poetry at the White House. Beyond the stage, each of The Strivers is not only a rigorous student (two are PhD candidates, and four as graduates at some of the nations top colleges and universities) but also a teaching artist firmly committed to social justice and the equality of education for all. Although they have appeared in television and film, and performed across 4 continents, performance is infinitely more than just a form of entertainment, it is a vehicle for transformation.
