Daniel Beaty, the multiple award winning writer and performer of Emergency and Through the Night is back! Your favorite characters from Emergency return with new stories to tell along with a host of new characters.  Mr. Joy is a Chinese American immigrant who has run a shoe shop in the heart of Harlem for the past 25 years when an unexpected occurrence causes several of his customers to reflect on the impact he has had on their lives through their shoes.  What has happened to this community’s joy and what will it take to reclaim it? Using Daniel’s signature blend of comedy, poetry, music, and multi-character transformation, Mr. Joy is a hilarious and heart-warming exploration of one community’s journey to heal in order to dream again and discover boundless joy.
