Our Lady of 121st Street

Our Lady of 121st Street

  • Opening Date: March 6, 2003  

The Ortiz Funeral Room is in big trouble: The body of beloved community activist and nun Sister Rose has been stolen from the viewing room, and waiting for her proper return are some of New York City's most emotionally charged, life-challenged neighborhood denizens, trying to find a place to put their grief, checkered pasts and their uncertain futures.

A work of genius! A great play from a startling new voice that sweeps away the tedium of an entire theatre season. It is, without question, the best play of the year. - The Journal News
