Fires in the Mirror: Crown Heights, Brooklyn and Other Identities


By Anna Deavere Smith
Directed by Marcella Kearns & C. Michael Wright
Featuring Elyse Edelman & Marti Gobel
In 1991, in the Crown Heights section of Brooklyn, a Hasidic man’s car jumped a curb, killing a seven-year-old black child. Shortly after, a Hasidic rabbinical student was stabbed and killed in what appeared to be an act of retaliation, sparking riots that made national headlines. But behind those headlines, there are people – politicians, activists, religious leaders, victims, and perpetrators alike – who each have their own story to tell. This landmark work of documentary theatre, presented with two actors playing 26 roles, is a theatrical event that cannot be missed!
