Baron of Brown Street
(Inspired by True Events) Lenny King, a homeless man living alone in a tent under an Ohio bridge, becomes an overnight celebrity after a newspaper story details Lenny’s kind heart in forgiving three teens who set him on fire and laughed at his pain as he burned. Enduring the physical and emotional scars of a man abused by life and his own bad decisions, Lenny must now fend off strangers looking to exploit him for their own publicity, including a quick-buck attorney, nosy photographer, local church members, developers and others. With each new visitor to what had been his quiet oasis, Lenny fights to retain what’s left of his privacy and dignity while examining what it truly means to forgive others and ourselves.

Living Wage Tickets
At Rubber City Theatre, we have made the commitment to build towards offering all artists and staff a living wage for their work. While we are just beginning this process, we ask that if you are able, to purchase one of our living wage tickets. Information on a living wage in Akron, OH is located here: https://livingwage.mit.edu/metros/10420 Help us #keepthetalenthere by providing better opportunities and a better living for these workers.
Since our inception, we believe that all patrons should have the opportunity to see professional theatre. Therefore, we have a select number of seats that can be purchased at any time that are subsidized. We encourage you to make use of these seats if you are unable to purchase one of the other seating options.
