Synopsis: "The Low Road examines the basic beliefs upon which we've built our economy and our country. Set in the 18th century, this wild new work imagines America's first laissez-faire capitalist, a young man inspired by a chance encounter with Adam Smith to put his faith in the free market. But his path to riches becomes inextricably entangled with that of an educated slave, a man who knows from experience that one person's profit is another's loss, in this parable about the true cost of inequality. The Low Road is about the imaginary lines between exploitation and opportunity."
The creative team features music composition by Mark Bennett, scenic design by David Korins, costume design by Emily Rebholz, lighting design by Ben Stanton, sound design by Matt Tierney, wig, hair, and make-up design by design J. Jared Janas & Dave Bova.
The Low Road Tickets are available now for performances from February 13 through to April 1, 2018.
