About Fires in the Mirror: Crown Heights, Brooklyn, and Other Identities

Produced in association with Theatrical Outfit in Atlanta, Georgia Artistic Director Matt Torney, Managing Director Gretchen Butler

THE GROUNDBREAKING DOCUMENTARY PLAY

Starring January LaVoy

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 – performed over 30 years after these life-changing riots – promises a tour-de-force solo performance and a story which touches upon every American regardless of race, color, or beliefs.
