Third Rail Projects to Transform Claire Tow Theater with Immersive GHOST LIGHT
In June, LCT3/Lincoln Center Theater's Claire Tow Theater will become the latest site to be transformed by the critically acclaimed Third Rail Projects when LCT3 presents the company's latest work GHOST LIGHT.
Third Rail Projects' GHOST LIGHT is conceived, directed, and choreographed by Zach Morris and Jennine Willett, written by Zach Morris, and created in collaboration with the Company. GHOST LIGHT will run for six weeks only beginning Saturday, June 3 through Sunday, July 16. Opening night is Monday, June 19 at 7pm in, around, and throughout the Claire Tow Theater (150 West 65 Street).
GHOST LIGHT is a performance about performance which invites audiences to follow performers into the unseen corners of the Claire Tow Theater and through a series of real and dreamlike landscapes beyond the footlights, the glitter, and the greasepaint.
Third Rail Project's GHOST LIGHT will feature Donna Ahmadi, Cameron Michael Burns, Elizabeth Carena, Alberto Denis, Joshua Dutton-Reaver, Julia Kelly, Roxanne Kidd, Josh Matthews, Rebekah Morin, Marissa Nielsen-Pincus, Tara O'Con, Edward Rice, JesSy Smith, Niko Tsocanos, Carlton Cyrus Ward, Jennine Willett, and Ryan Wuestewald. The production will have sets by Brett Banakis, costumes by Montana Blanco, lights by Eric Southern, and sound and original music by Sean Hagerty.
