Undesirable Elements/Generation NYZ
About the Production
In Undesirable Elements/Generation NYZ, seven young New Yorkers bravely speak their truths and share their stories on stage. Hailing from East New York to West Harlem and from the South Bronx to Far Rockaway, the Generation NYZ performers illuminate, in their own words, the challenges and joys of growing up in New York City, and all that goes into making our city inclusive, gritty, determined, creative and rich with community. This production was commissioned by the New Victory Theater to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the Undesirable Elements series.
