Civilians Atlantic Yards Play

ArtsBeat reports that documentary theater company the Civilians will premiere their show In the Footprint: The Battle Over Atlantic Yards this fall at the Irondale Center in Fort Greene, a few blocks from the titular mega-development. The show, which combines songs and monologues drawn from interviews with local residents, activists, business-owners, developers and politicians on either side of the fight over the in-progress project to build condos and a basketball stadium along Atlantic Avenue, will begin performances on November 12 and continue through December 11. Can’t wait that long? The Civilians will perform songs from the show during a cabaret night at Joe’s Pub on September 10. Either way, unfortunately, it appears to be too late.
