About New Jack City

New Jack City Play is an award-winning play that has become a classic piece of theater. It has appeared in venues around the world, from Broadway to London's West End, as well as being performed off-Broadway and by touring companies across the United States. The play was written by actor/writer Ralph Battelle and first premiered in 1996 in New York City. It was inspired by the 1991 film ‘New Jack City’ which follows the rise and fall of a powerful drug dealer from the early 90s. While staying true to its original source material, the play focuses more on the journey of self-discovery and reflection made by characters within this tough urban environment. When it first debuted on Broadway, New Jack City Play received rave reviews from critics and audiences alike. 

The production was also awarded three Tony Awards for Best Costume Design, Best Lighting Design, and also Best Choreography; some major recognition for such an ambitious production! The cast of this iconic show featured some big names in the theater. Ray Gill played Nino Brown, Bruce Willis portrayed Lieutenant Stone and John Turturro starred in his breakout role as Rhett Butler. Other notable actors included James Earl Jones as Chief Batson, Nicole Ari Parker as Keisha, Carl Wright as GMoney, and Joanna Cassidy as Fedorovna Gomez! Today, New Jack City Play continues to be praised for its honest depiction of contemporary street life through music, movement, poetry, and drama. It remains one of the most successful productions hailed for its incredible story arc, beautiful staging, and passionate performances from every member of its talented ensemble cast!
