Fly, a live production that tells the heroic tale of the Tuskegee Airmen through the eyes of four courageous young men, has opened in New York. This theatrical action-adventure, produced by NAACP and Ovation Award-winning Pasadena Playhouse and the Tony Award-winning Crossroads Theatre Company, will play The New Victory Theater in New York City from March 11-27. The production uses dance, video projection and a Tap Griot—a modern Greek chorus-like figure performed by Omar Edwards, who uses tap dance to convey a range of emotions—to illuminate the extraordinary bravery and determination of the first black military aviators in U.S. history who flew through the skies over Europe and North Africa during World War II. Tickets for Fly at The New Victory Theater (209 West 42nd Street) are $10, $13, $18 or $25 for Members based on seat locations, with full price tickets starting at $15. Tickets are available online (NewVictory.org) and by telephone (646.223.3010).
