A powerful one-act drama, Dutchman brought immediate and lasting attention to poet, author and activist Amiri Baraka (née Leroi Jones) -- and this 50th anniversary production, directed by the legendary stage director and producer Woodie King, Jr., serves as the closing event for the Atlanta Black Theatre Festival.

Your ticket includes choice of entree at the Backstage Cafe prior to the show. Learn More
