Based in the 1940’s just after prohibition, Black communities nationwide were thriving from the numbers racket. King of the Policy chronicles what life was like for men and women who were the Kings and Queens of running numbers. This musical has big singing, dancing, and historical context.
(It runs an hour and a half with no intermission and has some references to violence.)
