Messiah is a love story. Or many. It follows the journey of a DJ. A trans man. A seer with fire in his teeth. J. Edgar Hoover’s nightmare. A son of two Black Panthers. Come dance inside his church of memory.

Nia O. Witherspoon is a Brooklyn-based theatre maker, vocalist/composer, and cultural worker. Described as “especially fascinating” by Backstage Magazine, Witherspoon’s work creates contemporary ritual-space grounded in African-diaspora sensibilities to speak to the issues of our times. Her work has been commissioned by The Shed, JACK, and BRIC, and developed at NYTW, BAX/Brooklyn Arts Exchange, and HERE.
