Antigone in Ferguson takes over Brooklyn this summer from May 8 to July 13, 2019, presented by the Brooklyn Public Library at St. Ann & the Holy Trinity Church in Brooklyn Heights.

This innovative project fuses dramatic readings by acclaimed actors of Sophocles’ Antigone with live choral music. Each performance culminates in a powerful, audience-driven discussion of race and gender-based violence and social justice.

The performances feature a rotating cast of actors, including Amy Ryan, Chris Noth, Paul Giamatti, Jumaane Williams, Kathryn Erbe, Obi Abili, Linda Powell, Josh Hamilton, and David Strathairn, along with a lineup of guest choirs including R.Evolucion Latina, Brooklyn Interdenominational Chorus, United Voices of Hope, The Guardians and Bethel Gospel Assembly.

FREE tickets are available for Wednesday through Saturday 7:00pm-9:30pm, and Saturday Matinees from 2:00pm-5:30pm, through https://antigoneinferguson.eventbrite.com or by calling (917) 426-3233. For all inquries, including accessibility accommodations, you can also email AIFinfo@theaterofwar.com.

There’s nothing like a magical night under the stars listening to music. When that experience includes one of my favorite artists appearing in one of my favorite places in the world, it’s at the top of my bucket list.

It all came to be with a simple Facebook post.

50 years ago, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first humans to walk on the Moon.

On July 20, 1969, humans walked on another world for the first time in history, achieving the goal that President John F. Kennedy had set in 1961, before Americans had even orbited the Earth.
