Local Theatre Company Brave New World Putting On Free Play Just Across The Park
Brave New World Rehearsing Street Scene

If you have walked down Westminster Road in the past week or so, you may have gotten a sneak peak of local company Brave New World Repertory Theatre‘s upcoming production of Street Scene. They will be presenting two performances, at 1pm and 5pm on Saturday, June 22, live and for free on 5th Street between 8th Avenue and Prospect Park West in Park Slope:

Elmer Rice won the 1929 Pulitzer Prize for his play about a New York City “village” rife with domestic quarrels, racial and ethnic tensions and economic anxiety. Brave New World is taking Rice’s work to the streets—literally. The site-specific production will spill out the front windows and onto the front stoop and sidewalk of a tenement in Park Slope, which will serve as the stage with the audience seated in the street, closed to traffic for the day.

There is limited free seating for the elderly and disabled, as well as reserved seating for online donations of $75 or more — see their site for more info on both of those. Otherwise, seating is there as available, and there will be unlimited standing room.
