Inspired by a true story. "Rise" follows the story of a high school theater department as they take on an unconventional new leader (played by Josh Radnor). He encourages his students to unleash their creativity and explore new means of self-expression. Unfortunately, the enraged faculty and skeptical parents contest Mr. Mazzu's galvanizing efforts. But with passionate fervor running through the town's veins, no one can deny a revolution is underway. Watch Rosie Perez on the BUILD stage, where she discussed her role as a teacher in this inspiring show.
