NEW YORK PREMIERE
EXTENDED THRU DEC 21!"The extravagantly talented DANNY HOCH has created a fiery portrait gallery of a play. The strongest vignettes, pulsing seamless studies of character, range from satiric inventiveness to a sustained tour de force, reaching peaks of brilliance." -Ben Brantley, The New York Times
Hip-hop theater pioneer Danny Hoch storms The Public stage once again to chronicle the current state of gentrification of New York City. Blazing through a fierce spectrum of New Yorkers, Danny gives voice to everyone from the developers evicting locals to make way for lofts, to the bar-hopping career hipsters who buy them, and those left in the wake of both. True to Danny's signature style, Taking Over is a raw, explosive, hilarious, and heartbreaking study of the impact of our obsession with economic expansion.
A co-production with the Hip-Hop Theater Festival
