Murder (Actually) in the Cathedral

The Church of St. Joseph—the magnificent Catholic church in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn, that recently hosted a KtB-sponsored medieval music concert—is at it again. Last time it was love, this time it is death. The church is going to be the living stage for a production of T. S. Eliot’s Murder in the Cathedral, which tells the story of Thomas Becket’s assassination in Canterbury Cathedral in 1170. It is directed by OBIE winner Alec Duffy, with original music by Dave Malloy.

Performances run between September 16th and October 2nd, on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m., then also Sundays at 2 p.m. St. Joseph’s is at 856 Pacific St., between Vanderbilt and Underhill, near the Clinton/Washington C, the Bergen 2/3, and the 7th Ave. Q/B stops. Not far, also, from Atlantic Terminal.

Tickets are only $10, but even that is a suggested donation. “No one turned away,” they say. No advance reservations necessary. It’s an enormous church. Don’t miss this.
