Harriet

“History, heroism and leadership are the stuff of Kasi Lemmons’ rousing and heartfelt film.” (Guardian)

Based on the inspirational life of an iconic freedom fighter, Harriet tells the extraordinary tale of Harriet Tubman’s escape from slavery and her transformation into one of America’s greatest heroes. Her courage, ingenuity, and tenacity freed hundreds of slaves and changed the course of history. Starring Tony Award-winner Cynthia Erivo (Widows), Janelle Monae (Moonlight, Hidden Figures), and directed by Kasi Lemmons (Eve’s Bayou).

Tickets: $10 (members), $15 (nonmembers)

"The intensity and the lyrical fervor of Kasi Lemmons’s direction lend this historical drama, the exalted energy of secular scripture."
Richard Brody, The New Yorker
"An impassioned, edifying portrait of a remarkable life, and a fitting showcase for the considerable talents of its star, Tony-winning British actress Cynthia Erivo."
Leah Greenblatt, Entertainment Weekly
