HANDS ON and The Public Theater are pleased to announce an Interpreted Performance of RUNAWAYS at The Delacorte Theater, Central Park.

Tuesday, June 12 @ 8pm. 


In 1977, Elizabeth Swados approached Joe Papp about creating a new show made with, and about runaway youths of New York City - a group too often ignored and underestimated. Her musical would bring to life a powerful story of hope, loneliness, and humor among young people searching to find themselves. A champion of untold tales, Joe immediately commissioned the show and RUNAWAYS premiered at The Public in February 1978 before transferring to Broadway in May of the same year. The much-celebrated production went on to become a pillar of the musical theater canon and helped cement Swados as a visionary director and a legendary force in American musical theatre.

Featured in the cast - Deaf actress REN.

This production was initially produced by New York City Center's Encores! Off-Center in July 2016. 

Interpreters: Craig Fogel, Jina Porter & Adriana Vasquez

Interpreter Director: Alexandria Wailes
