Geva Theatre Center, 75 Woodbury Blvd, Rochester, will end its 2018-19 Fielding Studio Series with “The Royale” by Marco Ramirez on April 11-28.
Jay “The Sport” Jackson wants to be the undisputed heavyweight boxing champion of the world, but it’s 1905 and in racially segregated Jim Crow America, his chances are about as good as getting knocked out.
This production, directed by Pirronne Yousefzadeh, comes to Geva from the Kitchen Theatre Co. in Ithaca with the original cast and design team. “The Royale” stars Jamal James, Sean Meehan, DazMann Still, Lisa Tharps and Alexander Thomas.
Tickets start at $32. Call (585) 232-4382 or visit gevatheatre.org for information.
