Podcast Episode 18: Seth Zvi Rosenfeld and Johanna Pfaelzer

"Downtown Race Riot," Seth Zvi Rosenfeld's gritty urban comic drama, will be staged at Powerhouse Theater at Vassar College in Poughkeepsie through July 7. Brian K. Mahoney spoke with Rosenfeld and Johanna Pfaelzaer, artistic director of Powerhouse, on the Vassar campus in late June.

There’s a riot planned for Washington Square Park and a motley band of feckless, funny young men are spoiling for a fight. Against this backdrop of tribal loyalties and petty beefs, 18-year-old Pnut McPartland must pick sides and hustle his family and his friends just to stay alive. Director Scott Elliott (Hurlyburly) stages a portrait of a city and a boy in crisis by Seth Zvi Rosenfeld.

"Downtown Race Riot" runs through July 7 at Powerhouse Theater. For ticket information, and details about other shows planned for the 2013 Powerhouse season, click here.
