Fires in the Mirror

February 28 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

$25 – $30

A theatrical performance opening on Feb. 28 at the Weinstein JCC.

In August 1991, simmering tensions in the racially polarized neighborhood of Crown Heights erupt into riots after a Black child was killed by a car in the Chabad-Lubavitcher Rebbe’s motorcade and a white Jewish scholar was slain in retaliation. Anna Deavere Smith’s groundbreaking documentary play uses verbatim testimony from individuals throughout the diverse community, creating a nuanced portrait of a shared but divided geography. This theatrical event promises a tour-de-force solo performance and a story which touches upon every American regardless of race, color, or beliefs. Recommended for ages 12 and up.
