Amy Herzog returns to the Coney Island USA stage to assess the use of architectural renderings in imagining and promoting new development in 21st century Brooklyn as well as the fabulous and fantastical work of Albert Grass in Coney Island in the 1940’s. Playing with the notion of Brooklyn as a virtual playground she will explore the relationship between immersive experience and architectural fantasy. Those lucky enough to have seen Amy’s lectures in previous Congressional gatherings will know that her performances are not to be missed.

Amy Herzog is a professor of Media Studies at Queens College and the Author of “Dreams of Difference, Songs of the Same: The Musical Moment in Film”.
