LCT3 presents the New York premiere of Pass Over, written by Antoinette Nwandu and directed by Danya Taymor, which is set to play a limited six-week engagement at Lincoln Center's Claire Tow Theater this summer. Previews begin on June 2, 2018, ahead of an official opening on June 18. The LCT3 run will conclude on July 15, 2018.

Synopsis: "Moses and Kitch stand around on the corner - talking smack, passing the time, and hoping that today a miracle will come.  A provocative mashup of Waiting for Godot and the Exodus saga, Pass Over exposes the unquestionable human spirit of young black men who dream about a promised land they've yet to find."

Pass Over staged its world premiere last summer at Steppenwolf Theatre Company in Chicago, Illinois. A film adaptation of Pass Over, directed by Spike Lee, is also set to premiere at this month's Sundance Film Festival.

The creative team behind the LCT3 production features scenic design by Wilson Chin, costume design by Marci Rodgers, lighting design by Marcus Doshi, and sound design by Justin Ellington.

Casting will be announced at a later date.

LCT3's next production will be Martyna Majok's new play queens, running from February 10 to March 25, 2018 at the Claire Tow Theater. Lincoln Center Theater also presents the Broadway revival of Lerner & Loewe's beloved musical My Fair Lady at the Vivian Beaumont Theater from March 22, 2018, and Joshua Harmon's new play Admissions at the Mitzi E. Newhouse Theater from February 15, 2018.
