The Watts Towers Project

The Watts Towers Project

Co-presented with The Watts Towers Common Ground initiative: Art, Migrations, and Development

The Watts Towers Project is created and performed by Roger Guenveur Smith with sound design by Marc Anthony Thompson, projections by Daniel Foster, and lighting by Jose Lopez. An intimate meditation on solo endeavor, Smith’s play is inspired by the Simon Rodia masterwork, which has withstood earthquakes, riots, and civic indifference. Smith’s work for the international stage also includes the Obie Award-winning A Huey P. Newton Story, which he adapted into a Peabody Award-winning telefilm, and Inside the Creole Mafia, named Production of the Year by LA Weekly.
