What promises to be the #1 Off Broadway play this year is full of scenes with music, laughter, dance and thought-provoking moments. It unveils the gripping untold story of Nelson Mandela in a world changed forever by apartheid. Confrontational, uncompromising and fearless in their pursuit for freedom of oppression, Mandela, Winnie and The ANC fight against enormous odds, all the while maintaining their dignity and compassion. With all its depth, the creativity of “Mandela” gives such a profoundly unforgettable experience that pleasantly surprises the audience, making them want to see more. With all of its layers, Mandela manages to fluidly enact how the U.S and South Africa mirrored each other with how protesting Blacks suffered similar social injustices while fighting against oppression.
Mandela is not your typical revolutionary type of performance. This performance is highly entertaining, while brilliantly and tastefully performing the depiction of sensitive subjects . If you’re ready to laugh, cry and enjoy moments of celebration then come experience the unforgettable performance of Mandela!
“Run, don’t walk to get tickets to see Mandela! The actors deliver an award-worthy performance. Audiences leave empowered and uplifted!! I’m glad saw this before it hits Broadway!! A masterful interpretation of one of the greatest leaders of our time… for All Time!!” – Cheryl Wills, Anchorwoman, NY1
