New York Theatre Workshop's production of Sanctuary City has been extended through October 17, one week later than the original closing date. It began performances at the Lucille Lortel Theatre September 8 and officially opened September 21. The production also announced that Julian Elijah Martinez will join the Sanctuary City cast for the remainder of the play's run. Starting September 25, he will assume the role of Henry, replacing original cast member Austin Smith.
We’re all searching for some version of safety. A place where one is free to think, speak, live, and love that is exempt of judgement and ridicule. Sanctuary City, a new play from Pulitzer Prize winner Martyna Majok, questions if this sort of place exists, and if it does, is everyone welcome.
