NYC – An Afternoon with Arrow

Actor Stephen Amell appears at BUILD Studio on Tuesday, May 15, 2018 at 4:30 PM to talk about the latest season of ARROW.

Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) returns home to begin a new chapter in his life where he will confront a challenge unlike any he’s ever faced: fatherhood. The aftermath of Adrian Chase’s maniacal scheme throughout season five reminded Oliver how strongly he values family, both biological and chosen. With support from his team, Oliver is determined to embrace his new role as father to William while still serving and protecting his city as mayor and the Green Arrow. But when unexpected enemies from his past return to Star City and threaten his role as protector on three fronts, Oliver is forced to rethink his relationship with each member of his “family.”

Free tickets available on May 9th at 10:00 AM EST. **SOLD OUT**
