Sanctuary Five Boroughs One City

created by Michael Premo & Rachel Falcone
Developed with & directed by Rebecca Martinez
Music Director Broken Chord

Believers and nonbelievers from all walks of life and faith traditions are welcome at St. John the Divine. And in the community of this magnificent cathedral, many people have found home and sanctuary. But in a world of chaos and injustice, what does that mean? This unique project weaves interviews, text, lyrics and soundscape.

Sanctuary is part of Working Theater’s Five Boroughs/One City Initiative. The play was developed in partnership with the community at St. John the Divine.
