Molière in the Park presents OneLove OneTheatre Gala October 2 at Negril BK in Brooklyn. The event, which begins at 7 PM, honors the inaugural recipients of the theatre organization's Shoulder-to-Shoulder Award.
Emmy-winning actor and MIP founding member Samira Wiley and Consul Général of France in New York Jérémie Robert are the first recipients of the Shoulder-to-Shoulder Award. Both were selected due to their respective work in the community, which embodies a principle dear to MIP's mission: Theatre is an essential space where people of all socioeconomic, cultural, and racial backgrounds can sit shoulder to shoulder and share an experience of humanity and unity.
MIP, founded by Artistic Director Lucie Tiberghien and Co-Founding Executive Producer Garth Belcon, aims to promote empathy and unity within the diverse communities of Brooklyn through the arts, offering free year-round theatrical experiences for the public in Prospect Park.
Drinks, Caribbean-style hors d'oeuvres, and dessert will also be included this evening, which will continue until 10 PM.
Tickets for the gala are still available for purchase at MoliereInThePark.org.
