RushTix Recommends: Red Velvet

Red Velvet tells the story of Ira Aldridge. It’s 1833 in London. A black man has never performed on a British stage, not even as Othello. That all changes when Ira breaks through the color barrier and becomes a living legend. Experience the trials and triumphs of this amazing pioneer. Thrill as you journey through his life from Stratford to Saint Petersburg. Have you done anything as cool as Ira? Maybe not. But for just one night, you can see life through his eyes.
