ANTIGONE IN FERGUSON Presented by Theater of War Productions and Brooklyn Public Library
Theater of War Productions and Brooklyn Public Library will present an extended 10-week run of FREE performances of Antigone in Ferguson, Theater of War Productions' original project, exclusively supported by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation. Antigone in Ferguson opens on Wednesday, May 8 and continues through Saturday, July 13 at St. Ann & the Holy Trinity Church in Brooklyn (157 Montague St.).
The presentation will feature a rotating roster of acclaimed actors, including Chris Noth ("Sex and the City"), and Obi Abili ("Billions"), both who were featured in Antigone in Ferguson at Harlem Stage; along with Paul Giamatti ("Billions"); David Strathairn (Good Night, and Good Luck); Amy Ryan ("The Wire"); Josh Hamilton ("Eighth Grade"); Linda Powell ("Chicago Fire"); and New York City Public Advocate Jumaane Williams, a frequent participant in Theater of War Productions' projects. Each week will feature a different group of actors.
To further deepen connections to the community, performances will be enriched by the participation of local choirs from around the five boroughs, who will join The Phil Woodmore Singers each week. Local choirs include the Bethel Gospel Assembly, R.Evolución Latina, Brooklyn Interdenominational Choir, and United Voices of Hope. Two police choirs, The Guardians and The Police Athletic League Choir, both led by Sergeant Marcus Lewis, will also be participating during the extended run, marking the first participation of full police choirs in a run of Antigone in Ferguson.
