Post-performance Discussion Moderated by Elliott Forrest
Clybourne Park explores neighborhood integration and gentrification with fictional characters and biting humor. The documentary What Happened to Jackson Avenue, which was previewed at this year’s Phoenix Arts Festival, reveals the real-life impact of “urban renewal” in Nyack in the 1960s. Join Craig Smith, Executive Director of Phoenix Festival: Live Arts in Nyack, Elise Stone, Artistic Director, Phoenix Theatre Ensemble, Clybourne Park’s director, Kathleen Mahan, and the cast of Clybourne Park after the performance to discuss the different ways the show and the documentary illuminate the issues. The discussion will be moderated by Peabody Award winning broadcaster Elliott Forrest.
Thursday, November 30: Open Caption Performance
Elmwood Playhouse is thrilled to continue its Open Caption Performance Program. Captioning makes our performances accessible to Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing patrons. This popular program is supported, in part, by a generous grant from Orange and Rockland Community Partnership Program.
