Hoch play to debut Off-Broadway

'Dawn' set to open on Sept. 13

A new play by Danny Hoch gets a world preem Off Broadway in a fall production from the Culture Project.

Best-known for writing and performing multi-character solo shows (“Some People,” “Jails, Hospitals and Hip-Hop”) and as founder of the annual Hip-Hop Theater Fest, Hoch will direct an ensemble of thesps in his 11-character play “Till the Break of Dawn.” He will not act in the show.

“Dawn” follows an Internet hip-hop activist and his New York friends on a trip to Cuba that shakes up their political views. It is the first new work from Hoch to be seen in Gotham since “Jails” played P.S. 122 in 1988.
