Cost: $29 - $92

Age limit: Not available

Ongoing: until Sunday, May 7, 2017

Detroit, 2008, the breakroom of the Motor City's last stamping auto plant. Rumors say its closing. Three highly-skilled workers and their supervisor, all African-American, face uncertainty and, if they can find one, a less-fulfilling job. In Dominique Morriseau's at times uneven but ultimately compelling play, choices threaten loyalties. Crew is a co-production of the Old Globe and Moxie Theaters. Moxie's Delicia Turner Sonnenberg gives the piece a tough-minded, surprisingly funny  staging -- bring her back! -- aided by capable performances and design work, especially Tim Mackabee's industrial-generic set (with maybe the grungiest sofa ever at the White Theatre), Jennifer Brawn Gitting's precise costumes, and Lindsay Jones' sound design, which makes the stamping machine pulse like music. Critic's Pick.
