In Stoop Stories, Dael Orlandersmith, combines theatre, poetry, music and performance art in a powerful, sizzling, fierce symphony of the diverse voices that make up her neighborhood—people drawn from her life and from her imagination. She transforms with mesmerizing ease into a range of characters—from an elderly Polish Holocaust survivor who has a chance meeting with Billie Holiday; to a poetic young junkie; to a teenage Puerto Rican punk; to a washed-up rock 'n' roll star; to a 70-year-old New Yorker from Harlem heading to the West Village to see Nina Simone.
