Vassar College and New York Stage and Film Present Powerhouse Theater

The Purists

July 21, 2018

In the Susan Stein Shiva Theater

By Dan McCabe
Directed by Billy Porter

A former rapper, a DJ, and a musical theatre fanatic have become unlikely stoop buddies in Sunnyside, Queens. When their friendly riffing about race, sexuality and music in America turns personal – and with the arrival of two up-and-coming female emcees – the trio must confront the changes to their purist ideals and question what it means to be authentic.
