Author Ishmael Reed's new play "The Haunting of Lin-Manuel Miranda" returns to the Nuyorican Poets Cafe in October, after a sold-out run and coverage from the New York Times, New Yorker magazine, the Observer, the Paris Review and more.

After its world premiere at the Cafe this Spring, Ishmael Reed's "The Haunting of Lin-Manuel Miranda" returns for encore performances October 4-27th.

Like theater in the time of Bertolt Brecht or the WPA, Reed's new work (under the direction of multiple AUDELCO winner Rome Neal) challenges the narrative of commercial theater and mainstream historical accounts.

According to historian Ron Chernow and Lin-Manuel Miranda, Alexander Hamilton was an abolitionist, even though the real Hamilton was involved in the slave trade in a variety of ways, and endorsed a policy of "extirpation" toward Native Americans. Reed's play brings to the forefront those characters who are absent from “Hamilton, The Revolution": slaves, Native Americans, indentured servants and Harriet Tubman.

Witness this David vs Goliath moment, as the Nuyorican Poets Cafe, Reed and Neal speak truth to power via "The Haunting of Lin-Manuel Miranda."
