A Co-Production with Theater J in Washington DC

“Quite Simply, The Most Compelling View Of Racial & Class Conflict That One Could Hope To Encounter” – The New York Times

Theatrical Outfit & Theater J join forces to commemorate the 30th Anniversary of the Crown Heights riot by bringing Anna Deavere Smith’s (Shonda Rhimes’ For The People) documentary theatre masterpiece to life with soaring theatricality. Taken directly from a series of interviews with over fifty members of the Jewish and Black communities following the historic riots, Fires In The Mirror turns their voices into a tour de force one-woman show starring January Lavoy. This groundbreaking play is “Viscerally Smart [And] Endlessly Empathetic” (The New Yorker).
