News   PHOTO CALL: Epic Theatre Ensemble's Passion Play Opens in Brooklyn Sarah Ruhl's Passion Play opened May 12 at the Irondale Center in Fort Greene, Brooklyn.

Mark Wing-Davey directs a cast that features Brendan Averett, Dominic Fumusa, Polly Noonan, Daniel Pearce, Alex Podulke, Keith Reddin, Godfrey L. Simmons Jr., T. Ryder Smith, Kate Turnbull and Nicole Wiesner. "Inspired by the historic festivals where everyday citizens came together to elevate their communities by staging the life and death of Christ, Passion Play," according to press notes, "transports audiences first to 16th century England, where Queen Elizabeth threatens to shut down a small town's production; then to Nazi Germany, where Adolf Hitler's arrival at the famous Oberammergau Passion Play influences the lives of its cast and finally to Spearfish, South Dakota in 1984, as a local production becomes a campaign stop for a famous actor-turned-President running for re-election."

Here is a look at the opening-night bows and post-show reception held at the Irondale Center:
