Celebrate Brooklyn Writers!

Brooklynstreet The sixth annual Brave New World Salon Series, starting in January 2009, is going to feature Brooklyn-based Equity actors performing rehearsed readings of classic plays penned by notable Brooklyn writers. Highlights of the season include Pulitzer Prize winner David Lindsay-Abaire directing his own play, Fuddy Meers, and works by Arthur Miller (The Crucible), Lynn Nottage, and Charles Mee.

The series, from the Brave New World Repertory Theater, is best known for its bold productions of Fahrenheit 451, The Great White Hope, and Crossing Brooklyn Ferry, based on Walt Whitman's Leaves of Grass, and To Kill a Mockingbird, staged on the front porches of a tree-lined Ditmas Park street.

The readings are all set in notable Brooklyn locations: the Old Stone House, the Akwaaba Mansion, the Waterfront Barge Museum, and others. Each event includes dinner catered by Red Hook’s Fairway with wine courtesy of T.B. Ackerman Wine Merchants in Ditmas Park. The Brooklyn writers have also agreed to participate in talk backs.

The Salon will run until May 2009. Individual event tickets are $18 and seating is limited. Get all the info at www.bravenewworldrep.org.
