Oct. 26-Oct. 28: Invisible Man
There are only two days left to see Invisible Man at Studio Theatre before the play disappears! This stage adaptation by Oren Jacoby is based on the novel by Ralph Ellison, which follows an unnamed African American man as he journeys from the hallways of a Southern all-black college to a basement in Harlem. Although his below-ground hideout is illuminated with hundreds of light bulbs, the man feels invisible in a racially-divided America.

Lewis will read selected poems from his new work, National Geographic Book of Animal Poetry: 200 Poems with Photographs That Squeak, Soar, and Roar!
