Evening, midnight & matinee performances
Imagine sitting deep within Green-Wood Cemetery on a beautiful
summer's night when the residents (now deceased) of the fictional
town of Spoon River begin to appear in the distance, assemble in
front of you, and one by one divulge their secrets, their private
thoughts, their regrets and the turmoil that filled their lives.
Accompanied by seven beautiful, historic songs, including "In the
Gloaming," 11 actors tell a story of the fictional town of Spoon
River. Tom Andolora of Brooklyn College has adapted the classic
