The Innovative Theatre Award-winning Broken Box Mime Theater will premiere Skin, a new collection of short plays set to music, beginning January 18, 2019, at the A.R.T./New York Theatres Off-Broadway.

Created by BKBX’s resident ensemble, the plays take French pantomime and reimagines it through a contemporary American lens.

Artistic Director Becky Baumwoll leads a cast that includes Nick Abeel, Duane Cooper, Blake Habermann, David Jenkins, Marissa Molnar, Joél Pérez, Regan Sims, and Matt Zambrano. Additional company members of BKBX include Géraldine Dulex, Ismael Castillo, Dinah Berkeley, and Tasha Milkman.

Skin will feature Celebrity Guest Star, “in which a popular sitcom is forced to carry the burden of a truly humorless guest actor”; the “fierce competition of impressive manscaping” in The 16th Annual Brooklyn Beard AwardsHashtag, ”exploring the gray areas of consent and memory on a first date”; and Fall From Grace, “the attempt of a young man to revise memories of his misogynistic father in the #MeToo era.”

Lighting design is by Jamie Roderick, and Esti Bernstein serves as stage manager.

Vaudevisuals interview with Adam Burnett & Lisa Nevada – “T.B. Sheets”

T.B. Sheets – About The Show

Set in a tuberculosis sanatorium on a remote mountainside (not unlike Magic Mountain), a community of terminally ill Ones transcend to an order of living saints and build a spaceship to escape their physical ailments. This dizzying and iconoclastic new work celebrates the power and beauty of the fragile body and the multiplicity and fluidity of identity.

Buran Theatre is an NYC-based ensemble of disparate multidisciplinary and intergenerational artists who joyfully and anarchically reconfigure narrative, form, genre, gender, and design to develop and present new performance works. Past productions include The House of Fitzcarraldo, Meile be Akcento, Nightmares: a demonstration of the sublime, Magic Bullets, and Mammoth, among others.

Performance space for this production was subsidized by the A.R.T./New York Theatres Rental Subsidy Fund, a program of the Alliance of Resident Theatres/New York (A.R.T./New York).
