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 Awards; Hashtag, ”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.
Tickets are $25. Visit brokenboxmime.com.
