After a sold-out, extended engagement in Los Angeles, Firelight Collective and producer Hillary Ellison are bringing Stars in the Night to Dumbo, Brooklyn, for its New York premiere, September 13-October 14, with opening night set for Sunday, September 16.

Written and directed by Firelight Collective artistic directors Stephanie Feury and Nathan Keyes, Stars in the Night, according to a press release, "unravels across the cobblestone streets, homes, and businesses of Dumbo, Brooklyn. Intimate groups of 12 audience members are taken on a journey to witness the fallout when a woman suddenly goes missing, and the ripples of her disappearance illuminate mystifying connections between seeming strangers. An original story performed by nine actors, Stars in the Night is staged throughout four locations — from the iconic 19th-century warehouse newly refurbished as Empire Stores, into secret and unexpected environments and intimate living spaces, revealing a deeply powerful and engaging experience."

The cast will include Matt Brown, Allison Byrnes, Benjamin Chase, Davonna Dehay, David Haley, Hannah Broderick Kraft, William Nicol, Deanna Noe, and Jennifer Sacks. Matt Pulliam will be the production designer.
