About The Eternal Space
October 28th, 1963, New York City: Pennsylvania Station is slated for demolition. The wrecking crews are outside dismantling a fifty-three year-old marvel of American Beauxarts architecture. Inside a construction worker, turned photographer, is running away from his past while an aging activist can’t let his go. Set against the actual photographic catalogue of Penn Station’s tragic demolition, The Eternal Space charts two very different lives brought together by the historic act that divides them.
Following two very successful developmental readings in December of 2012 and May of 2013, and the success of a 50th Anniversary Reading panel at the AIANY's Center for Architecture (read more about that below), our show was honored by being chosen by Fordham University's Alumni Company as being part of its New Work's series in June of 2014.
The production went on to have a very successful four week Off-Broadway engagement at Theatre Row's The Lion Theater in the Fall of 2015.
The Eternal Space, a beautifully simple but unique production, aims to bring the Old Penn Station back to life while giving voice to the quiet lament of losing it half a century ago.
