The Royale
2022/23 Mainstage Season

THE ROYALE
Philadelphia Premiere
By Marco Ramirez
Directed and Choreographed by Zuhairah McGill

LIVE ON STAGE
November 10 - December 11, 2022

Set in the early 1900s, The Royale takes inspiration from the life of Jack Johnson, the first African American heavyweight world boxing champion. Ramirez's riveting drama is filled with the rhythms of the ring and of the people fighting for freedom, dignity, and success in a fascinating and important chapter in our national story.
