Kirk Douglas Theatre

Harlem, Père Lachaise Cemetery, rock ’n’ roll, Jim Morrison, Richard Wright, poetry, and ghosts. Celebrated playwright/performer Dael Orlandersmith returns to the Douglas for a limited World premiere run of her newest play, Forever, prior to its New York debut. Forever is a riveting and masterful piece about family—the ones we were born into, the ones we create for ourselves—and the legacies that shape us all.
