Review from Satisfied Customer

This was a realistic glimpse into the tragic culture of inner-city girl gangs. The acting was superb and the story compelling. This show is a must see!

“A searing, take-no-prisoners play.” —Chicago Sun-Times


The Studio 2ndStage kicks off its 20th anniversary season with Breath, Boom: the gritty, vivid story of one woman’s journey from gang girl to grown-up. The play follows fourteen years in the life of Prix as she goes from sixteen-year-old gang queen to mature, thirty-year-old woman. This will be the Washington premiere of the work of playwright Kia Corthron, an important voice in contemporary African-American theatre whose work has never seen a full production in DC. Emerging talent Rahaleh Nassri directs a young, dynamic, and multi-ethnic cast of twelve women and one man, featuring powerhouse performer Roxi Trapp-Dukes as Prix.
