Newly added to the event, Brian Stokes Mitchell and other actors will read New York-centric literature, in partnership with Symphony Space's Selected Shorts.
On May 7, Rosie Perez will moderate a conversation featuring Landmark Preservation Commission Chair Bob Tierney, in a program entitled The Places That Bind: Examining Preservation and Culture in a Changing City.
Additional events at Greene Space will also include a production of Arthur Yorinks' reimagining of H.G. Wells' The Invisible Man, featuring live music by Michael Reisman; a restaging of Archibald McLeish's The Fall of the City; and live broadcasts of several of WYNYC's popular radio shows, featuring such special guests as Lou Reed, Simone Dinnerstein, John Zorn, Ute Lemper, Jill Clayburgh, David Rabe, and Joy Behar, among others.
