About Anthem - Off Broadway

Show Info


Anthem is the story of a young man, EQUALITY 7-2521, who is born into a future world that has banished all individuality. Not satisfied with a world lighted by candles, EQUALITY fosters his love of discovery in an abandoned subway, a relic of the past. In solitude, EQUALITY rediscovers electricity and a new source of light. Above ground he meets and falls in love with LIBERTY 5-3000, committing a further "sin of preference."

In honor of the best-selling novella’s 75th anniversary, Austin Shakespeare presents the New York premiere of Ayn Rand's Anthem. This new take on the powerful classic, which has sold over five million copies worldwide, follows the story of a young man in a dark future who must overcome totalitarian conformity by discovering a sinful, forgotten word.

Anthem runs off-Broadway through December 1, 2013.
