The Royale by Marco Ramirez // Directed by Stuart Carden // Body Percussion & Movement Choreography by Stephanie Paul 

Jay “The Sport” Jackson is a legend in the making. He has his eyes set on becoming the heavyweight champion of the world, but the Jim Crow reality of 1905 America might just be his fiercest opponent yet. This thrilling drama by Marco Ramirez (Netflix’s DaredevilOrange is the New Black) goes ringside for the fight of the century. Inspired by the true story of trail-blazing boxer Jack Johnson, The Royale follows one man’s quest for victory against all odds.
