Drama To Present Emily Mann’s Execution Of Justice


The New School for Drama presents Emily Mann’s Execution of Justice as the first offering of its FIRST LOOK 2011-12 performance series.

Execution of Justice examines disgruntled former City Supervisor Dan White who loaded a gun, entered City Hall through a basement window, and walked upstairs to assassinate Mayor George Moscone and Supervisor Harvey Milk. Each was killed by multiple shots fired at point blank range. The ensuing trial was epic. The verdict was legendary.

FIRST LOOK presents classic and modern works staged in a final rehearsal performance, with minimal sets, lights, costumes, and props. The production features second-year acting students and is directed by Drama’s directing department head Lou Jacob.

Performances are Thursday through Saturday, November 3-5, at 8:00 p.m., with a matinee on Saturday at 3:00 p.m. They will take place at The New School for Drama Theater, 151 Bank Street, 3rd floor. Admission is free, but seating is limited. Reservations are recommended; call Ticket Central at 212.279.4200 or visit their website.
