An eerie play held in a beautiful old church - just the thing to get us in the mood for Halloween? Info on the play is below. I'm asking $1 per person to cover meetup fees; tickets for the play are free with a suggested donation of $10 (pay at the door). The show starts at 7:30; let's meet in front of the church at 7.
Also, we'll go out for drinks afterward! I'm listing that as a separate event in case people want to attend one or the other.
OBIE Award-winner Alec Duffy (Three Pianos) helms Nobel writer T.S. Eliot’s classic poetic drama in a dynamic, site-specific production featuring a diverse cast, thrilling staging and an original musical score by Jonathan Larson Award-winning composer Dave Malloy (Beowulf: A Thousand Years of Baggage).
The drama recounts the last month in the life of Thomas Becket, the Archbishop of Canterbury, who faces certain death for his defense of the Church against the crown of England. As Becket continues in his journey, he confronts the very human drama of individual integrity, the expectations of friendship, and the struggle of will.
For the production, the newly refurbished cathedral of this century-old Prospect Heights institution, the Church of St. Joseph, will be filled with drama, music, and tremendous artistry, offering a unique theatrical experience in an awe-inspiring space. For more info on this production, see www.murderinthecathedral.com.
The Church of St. Joseph is located in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn, at 856 Pacific Street, between Vanderbilt and Underhill. Transportation: 2, 3 train to Bergen Street; Q, B train to 7th Avenue, C train to Clinton-Washington Aves, or the 4,5 to Atlantic Avenue. Hope to see you there!
