Long-awaited U.S. premiere of ‘My Name is Rachel Corrie’ set for Minetta Lane Theatre
“My Name is Rachel Corrie,” the award-winning play based on the writings of Rachel Corrie, is at long last coming to the United States. Initially set to open at the historic Making Theatre in New York on March 22 of this year, the play was “postponed indefinitely” on short notice by the New York Theatre Workshop amid political pressure over the one-woman piece’s humanistic content about the military occupation of Palestinian Territories. Shortly after the derailment at the Making Theatre, however, the the one-act performance found a home in New York at Off-Broadway’s Minetta Lane Theatre. The play opens October 5.
