The medieval mystery play got a 21st century update in December when the Christmas story was brought to life on the streets of New York City through a raucous mix of music, dance, song, and drink.
In Strangers and Other Angels, Manhattan’s Morningside Heights became the backdrop for a wild, joyful re-imagination of the centuries-old Second Shepherd’s Play. The production wound inside and outside venues throughout the neighborhood, from Sakura Park near Riverside Church to the Union Theological Seminary. Gathering crowds along the way, the performance culminated with a celebratory dance involving the entire cast and audience and food and drink for all to share.
