AIN'T SUPPOSED TO DIE A NATURAL DEATH

About The Show:

A totally unique fiction form, AIN'T SUPPOSED TO DIE A NATURAL DEATH is a gutsy, lusty narrative of Black street life that explores every aspect of ghetto agony. Peopled by junkies, whores, pimps, lesbians, drag queens, sweating workers, crooked cops, prisoners, lovers, and dreamers, Van Peebles' play is considered a tradition shattering and trend setting work which spawned the choreopoem, spoken word, and rap music. AIN'T SUPPOSED TO DIE was a huge hit on Broadway in its original inception, where it was nominated for seven Tony Awards, including Best Musical. Alfred Preisser's production in 2004 received a Drama Desk Nomination for Best Musical Revival.
