Living St. Louis | And In This Corner…

Last Updated by Dale Fisher on

Metro Theater Company’s production of And In This Corner…Cassius Clay, started out as an effort to address some of the emotions and confusion that young people in St. Louis were experiencing in the aftermath of the events in Ferguson.  With the help of individuals and organizations all over our city, support for the play became a strong network of partnerships that enabled over 7,000 students to go to the Missouri History Museum for a performance and participate in post-show Q&A sessions.  One of the most profound partnerships Metro formed was with St. Louis All City Youth Foundation– a not-for-profit youth organization and boxing gym where the actors learned much more than how to throw a punch from the coaches and young athletes who train there.
