Fires in the Mirror

Wendall McMillan House in Anna Deavere Smith's Fires in the Mirror at Epic Theatre Company

The 90s revival of 2019 continues with Epic Theatre Company’s season opener, Anna Deavere Smith’s Fires In the Mirror: Crown Heights, Brooklyn, and Other Identities. The 1992 play is about the previous year’s Crown Heights riots, a deadly clash between the neighborhood’s black and Hasidic residents. Originally produced as a one-woman show and based on actual interviews, this version features fifteen performers taking on monologues by nearly thirty interviewees, from Haitian teenagers to Angela Davis and Rev. Al Sharpton. I haven’t seen the production yet, but Motif liked it.
