About Twilight: Los Angeles, 1992

Extended through Nov 21!

★★★★★ Critic’s Pick “Powerful, touching and illuminating.” (Time Out New York)

“Excellent revival. There’s a moral thrill in the work that will never fade.” (New York Magazine)

“As necessary now as when Los Angeles was actively smoldering.” (The New York Times)

One verdict can change the course of history. The news of the police officers’ acquittal in Rodney King’s police brutality case reverberated throughout the streets of Los Angeles. Variously called a “revolution, or a social explosion,” the events that followed the verdict drew worldwide attention. Signature Theatre reopens with a powerful reimagining of Anna Deavere Smith’s “Twilight: Los Angeles, 1992” revised by Anna for an ensemble cast. Taibi Magar directs this transformative study of the 1992 L.A civil unrest, revealing the fault lines that set the city ablaze.
