New Jack City: Live on Stage

May 05, 2023 | 8:00 PM

Je’Caryous Johnson’s adaptation of NEW JACK CITY LIVE stars critically acclaimed actor Allen Payne, who will be reprising his role from the film, as “Gee Money,” legendary rapper and lead singer of the iconic rap group Naughty By Nature, “Treach” as “Nino Brown,” actor and star of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, Gary Dourdan as “Scotty Appleton,” and actor and star of one of TV’s classic hit shows One on One, Flex Alexander as “Pookie.”

NEW JACK CITY LIVE will be a mirror image of the emotion and grit that immediately turned New Jack City into instant, movie magic. It takes place in the same metropolis-Harlem, NY where drug kingpin Nino Brown takes over a housing project and transforms it into a fortress-like crack house. Nino and his gang, the Cash Money Brothers, will ply their trade with total impunity-- one crime family will still be bonded by blood and forged together through friendship.
