The Foundry Theatre’s current offering, “The Provenance Of Beauty” by Claudia Rankine, is a play that discusses the past, present and future of the South Bronx, and the issues of gentrification and growth that exist within the community.

The production doesn’t rely on traditional staging, as it’s performed entirely on a bus, beginning and ending on East 122nd St. The audience is escorted by one performer (Sarah Nina Hayon) who plays many different characters, which compliment recorded voices that the audience hears through personal headsets.

The landmarks, people, and traffic that surround the bus throughout its journey act as moving set pieces which should make each performance a unique one.

Performances are at 1pm and 4pm every weekend until October 25.
