New Jack City

Returning to The National for one weekend only! NEW JACK CITY LIVE is a mirror image of the emotion and grit that immediately turned New Jack City into instant, movie magic.  It takes place in the same metropolis-Harlem, NY where drug kingpin Nino Brown takes over a housing project and transforms it into a fortress-like crack house. Nino and his gang, the Cash Money Brothers, will ply their trade with total impunity– one crime family will still be bonded by blood and forged together through friendship.

Set to the soundtrack of some of the most quintessential songs from the film, NEW JACK CITY LIVE will give audiences across the nation an opportunity to relive all their favorite, intense, heart-pounding moments from the blockbuster movie as they experience classic theater storytelling as shared through the culturally astute lens of four-time national championship playwright and NAACP Trailblazer Award recipient, Je’Caryous Johnson.

NEW JACK CITY LIVE will begin February 16, 2023 and is a theatrical event recommended for ages 18 and up. No one under 12 admitted. The show runs approximately 2 hours and 30 minutes, including one intermission.
