The Royale

Set in 1905, THE ROYALE takes inspiration from the life of Jack Johnson, the first African American heavyweight world boxing champion. Ramirez's riveting drama is filled with the rhythms of the ring and of the people fighting for freedom, dignity, and success in a fascinating and important chapter in our national story.

Accessibility: This production will be performed at St. Stephen's Theater, 923 Ludlow Street in Center City Philadelphia. We regret that both the seating area and restrooms require navigating a flight of stairs and are therefore not accessible to patrons using a wheelchair; no elevator service is available. We are, however, able to accommodate patrons with early seating or other special needs; please let us know how we may assist you.

COVID Information: Everyone other than the actors on stage must wear properly fitted masks at all times in all parts of our venue. Thank you for your cooperation with these safety protocols that help protect you, our artists, and our staff – and help avoid performance cancellations. As of August 2022, proof of vaccination is no longer required. Any updates to these policies will be announced 30 days prior to the start of each production.
