The Astor Place Riots: America's Deadly Theatrical Rivalry
Wednesday, May 10 at 5:30 pm EDT
New York Adventure Club presents Ralph Lewis's webinar of the story behind the Astor Place Riots of 1849—from the deadly clash outside of New York's Astor Opera House between supporters of American actor Edwin Forrest and British actor William Charles Macready, to the unfortunate role actors, managers, elected officials, and the military had in the incident.
Peculiar Works Project was founded by Ralph Lewis, Catherine Porter and Barry Rowell to create original performances that are accessible and engaging for diverse audiences. Using various artistic disciplines in unique combinations, we challenge the conventions and clichés of alternative theater. From initial concept to full production, PWP encourages collaboration, experimentation and a rebel spirit in creative artists by providing the tools and opportunities to realize their artistic goals.
