Last year, we began the process that would create #hero with a method that we knew worked: a dare, submitted by our community. "We fight about the little things, so we can ignore the big things." Since then the entire company has been collaborating to shape the story.
#hero follows NYPD Officer Norman Burrows and his wife Grace. After Norman saves a woman who falls on the subway tracks, he becomes a social media sensation. As his public profile grows, their private life unravels, until the hero must expose his own myth.
Just look at the breadth of ideas populating the feed on this page. Have we lost touch with ourselves in a hyper-connected world? Do our public acts define our private lives? It's easy to connect with everyone; but is it worth it to connect with anyone?
We could not be more excited to bring this play to you. We hope you'll join us as we push our company's mission to new limits. We share new voices. We create memorable experiences. We challenge ourselves and our community to follow one basic rule: demand BOLD theatre
