Khanisha Foster & Cloteal L. Horne to Star in FIRES IN THE MIRROR at Baltimore Center Stage

Baltimore Center Stage has announced the complete cast and creative team for Fires In The Mirror: Crown Heights, Brooklyn And Other Identities, co-produced by Long Wharf Theatre. Written by Anna Deavere Smith (Notes From the Field) and directed by Nicole Brewer (Milk Like Sugar), Fires In The Mirror begins performances on Saturday November 27 for a limited run through Sunday December 19, 2021.

In the late summer of 1991, long-simmering tensions between Black and Jewish residents of Crown Heights, Brooklyn erupted in a series of violent events. Renowned playwright Anna Deavere Smith interviewed more than 100 people about those tension-filled days, creating a striking tapestry of oral histories examining that flashpoint moment in American history. A single performer brings those stories to electrifying life in Fires in the Mirror.

Khanisha Foster (Generation Sex) and Cloteal L. Horne (The Promotion) will alternate performances, embodying Anna Deavere Smith's iconic 26-character tour-de-force.

Fires in the Mirror features scenic design by Diggle (Monstersongs), costume design by Mika Eubanks (Revolt. She Said. Revolt Again.), lighting design by Porsche McGovern (Mothers) and projection design by Camilla Tassi (Stinney: An American Execution). Sound Design is by UptownWorks (Bailey Trierweiler, Daniela Hart & Noel Nichols). Norman Anthony Small Jr. (Where We Stand) is the production stage manager. Casting is by X Casting NYC. Raecine Singletary is the assistant director and Grace Chariya is the production assistant. Rachel Finley is the accent coach.
