A star-studded cast will take the St. Ann’s
Warehouse stage on Dec. 8 for Arts at St. Ann’s 25th anniversary
benefit bash. Among the musicians (aka barflies) who will perform
"Fire at Keaton’s Bar & Grill" are Laurie Anderson,
Lou Reed (pictured), Dan Zanes & Cynthia Hopkins, the Jazz
Passengers, Marc Anthony Thompson and Nellie McKay. Deborah Harry
will reprise her role as the bartender in Roy Nathanson’s song
cycle about a mythical dive bar.
In 2000, "Fire at Keaton’s," featuring Harry and Elvis Costello, premiered at St. Ann’s in their former home in the Church of St. Ann and the Holy Trinity on Montague Street. After four sold-out performances, it went on to a successful European tour. For Wednesday’s one-night-only revival, the DUMBO warehouse (located at 38 Water St. at Dock Street) will be transformed into a bar and grill where dinner and cocktails will be served during and after the show.
