Murder in the (Pacific Street) Cathedral

(Pictured: Godfrey L. Simmons, Jr. as Thomas Becket)

Put this on your calendar: 10 years after it was last staged in New York City, T.S. Eliot's Murder in the Cathedral is coming to Prospect/Crown Heights, and in grand fashion. The site-specific production, featuring award-winning thespians both on and off the stage, will take place in the newly-restored Church of St. Joseph (visible in the background of the photo, above). A joint production of the Church and Brooklyn Arts HQ, a brand-new non-profit offering community-based performance experiences, the play will be directed by OBIE-award winning director Alec Duffy and features original music from Jonathan Larson Award winner Dave Malloy.

This one-of-a-kind show is being offered FREE (a $10 donation is suggested, but no one will be turned away), and runs from September 16 - October 2nd, with performances at 7:30pm Thursday - Saturday and a 2pm Sunday matinee. For more information, contact producer Hillary at 917.324.0041 or hillaryemiller [at] gmail [dot] com. Save the date!
