Brooklyn's Irondale Ensemble Project has announced its fall lineup. Joe McCarthy, Cobble Hill neighbour and Irondale's development director, writes in to say:
Last weekend we opened the new Irondale Center in Fort Greene, three blocks up Lafayette Avenue from BAM. 450 people stopped by at our open house, and 200 stayed for dinner followed by five entertainment sketches. The "house warming" was sponsored by the Brooklyn Daily Eagle and Brooklyn Brewery, and 22 restaurants and other merchants provided vast quantities of very tasty food and treats.
Now, beginning next Friday, October 24 (previews 10/22 & 23), we will be reviving our "somewhat dark" version of J.M. Barrie's novel, Peter Pan. D.J.R. Bruckner described it in the New York Times in November 2001 as, "a bit unnerving but also very good fun." This not the original play, nor remotely like its animated Disnification. It is a child's story told for adults with strong psychological undercurrents. It will run through November 8, Wednesday through Saturday, with a Saturday matinee.
