Synopsis
TURN ME LOOSE is a new comedic drama about the extraordinary and explosive life of Dick Gregory - starring Emmy Winner and Scandal star Joe Morton - that shines a light on the first black comedian to expose white audiences to racial comedy. Gregory confronted bigotry with shockingly disarming humor, marched alongside Martin Luther King, Jr., and deeply influenced comics from Richard Pryor to Chris Rock. He’s been a prolific writer, muckraker, provocateur, candidate for mayor of Chicago and for president of the United States. He was singled out by President Obama as one of his all-time favorite comedians. Experience the comic genius of Dick Gregory and the poetic final words of his mentor, slain civil rights activist, Medgar Evers: "Turn Me Loose."

Best Theater of 2016. Scorchingly funny. Brilliant. Takes your breath away.
