MBCT has her nose in the books

MBCT supporters,

I have been accepted into NYU's Gallatin School of Individualized Study with a focus on Theatre Directing, specifically adapting classic stories for the stage and physical theatre.

Due to my studies, MBCT will be taking a break from producing. The next show was officially announced at MEDEA: a Tragedy of Revenge's cast/crew party (but not yet to the public, so for now it's still a secret), and I am so excited for such an amazing project. Instead of going ahead with it this fall, it is deferred until further notice. This means more time to research, write, and focus on the project.

Until then, MBCT is happy to continue the discussion about classic stories for a modern audience: How do we continually reinvent these plays without exhausting them? How can our bodies and voices train to tell the stories? How big and bold can we tell these tales?

So go out there and watch some theatre! Support your local companies, donate to your favorite houses, stand and shout "BRAVO!" when you love a show! Directors, playwrights, actors, designers, stage managers, ushers, technicians, administrators all depend on both your physical and financial support.

Thank you,
Miriam Tobin

Artisitc Director (and now grad student!)
