NEW YORK - After a successful four month run Off-Off-Broadway at East Village Playhouse, A Brooklyn Boy, a one-man show co-written and performed by Steven Prescod and co-written and directed by Moises Roberto Belizario, will make its West Coast premiere at the Actors Company Other Space Theater as part of the Hollywood Fringe Festival.

Called “A Tour de Force” by The New York Times and “Inspirational” by Prince William, A Brooklyn Boy tells the story of how a 16 year old arrested for robbery and assault, facing seven years in an upstate prison, got a second chance. Steven shares the stories of his life in a gripping tale of love, family, the streets, gang violence and self-acceptance.
