Hang onto your hats, we have some crazy news!

Due to some unforeseen circumstances, MBCT has a new home for its production of Three Sisters: a tale of dreams and woe and the Art Stampede.  We have spent the last couple of days researching, visiting, and talking with various theaters around the city and after careful consideration have found what we believe to be a wonderful new theatre!  A couple of the production dates have also changed.

Our new home is The Brooklyn Lyceum.  The production dates are as follows:

Three Sisters: a tale of dreams and woe
March 18, 19, 22, 23, 24 @ 8pm
March 20 @ 5pm

Tickets to Three Sisters are $15 ($10 for seniors and students w/ ID); Art Stampede tickets are $10.  A combination Art Stampede/Three Sisters ticket is $20, which can be purchased at the theatre.  Solo Three Sisters tickets may be purchased in advance at TheaterMania.

Thank you for understanding this sudden change to venue and dates.  We are really proud of the work we're creating, and the Brooklyn Lyceum truly compliments the aesthetics of Three Sisters.  In the end, this may actually be a blessing-in-disguise, and we can't wait to discover all the possibilities this new space offers. 

Come join MBCT on this crazy adventure as we move into a new home!  See you at the theatre.

Photo Shoot in Central Park

This past Sunday, bright and early at 8am, we met in Central Park, bright and early at 8am, for our Three Sisters photo shoot.  

And it was COLD!

We trudged through the snow and under tunnels, over bridges and across meadows...

... have I mentioned that is was really COLD?

Desiree, our photographer, led us to the location: a beautiful wooden bridge over a  creek.  Fallen logs, hollowed out trunks, and tree stumps provided a wonderfully fairytale-esque little corner of the park.

The actors, with the help of a team of about five, quickly changed from their warm winter clothes into lingerie, underwear, fur collars, and jewelry.

Cheeks were pinched, hair was twirled, and they lined up for their Family Portrait.

Then, each actor had an individual portrait, posing in their underwear in the midst of the frozen tundra.

Five actors meant five crazy winter challenges: Sarah stood up to her knees in the creek, Alex stood up to her knees in the snow, Charlie balanced on a snowy log over the creek, Emily lay in the snow under a hollowed out log, and Tim stood on a slippery rock in the middle of the creek.

Everyone was happy when it was time to pack up and go find heat.

Well, happy but still cold.

And until the official photographs are ready for their reveal, here's a sneak peak.
