HANDBALL at SummerStage New York City

As part of our 2014 season, Urban Theatre Movement presents HANDBALL by Seth Zvi Rosenfeld at New York City’s exceptional annual summer festival, Summerstage — a three months offering of free live shows encompassing music, dance, theater and film that are staged all over the city.

In a co-production with City Parks Foundation City Park Theater, HANDBALL, a play about gentrification in a New York City neighborhood, will have a total of eleven performances in both Marcus Garvey Park and Central Park. The first performance is on July 29, 2014 at 8pm (Details here).

Last fall, Urban Theatre Movement produced the world premiere production of HANDBALL to rave audience and critical reviews (here and here). If you missed this compelling and powerful portrait of a neighborhood in flux, with characters both real and larger than life, here is another opportunity to experience it. With director Brenda Banda back at the helm, the mostly original cast will perform at all engagements during the festival.
