Dam/aged, the Musical is a theatrical performance that intentionally addresses the harsh realities or urban blight that exist in communities of color across America. Social issues that include prostitution, gang violence, substance abuse, domestic violence, and absent fathers, are weaved into an abstract multimedia musical to explore the struggles of several young people as they attempt to rise above the social inequities that have traditionally plagued communities of color.
