BEYOND SACRED: VOICES OF MUSLIM IDENTITY

In this compelling work of documentary theater by Ping Chong + Company, the five people you see onstage are more than the production's original cast. Tiffany Yasmin Abdelghani, Ferdous Dehqan, Kadin Herring, Amir Khafagy, and Maha Syed are young Muslim New Yorkers relating their own real-life experiences. All were children at the time of the 9/11 attacks and, aside from Dehqan, who came to the United States in 2013, all remember how differently they were treated afterward. The stories are their own, a chronicle of diversity and stigma, in a dramatic work The New York Times called "an exercise in empathy, not polemics: a lesson in human understanding, drawn from real lives." —Byron Woods
