The company preparing 291 River Street for its 2010 season
Bakerloo Theatre Project's 2011 season will be produced at 291 River Street in Troy, NY. 291 River was the site of Bakerloo's critically acclaimed productions of Romeo and Juliet and Under Milk Wood in 2010. Once again, Bakerloo will convert this empty storefront into a temporary performance space for the month of July.
Bakerloo is committed to the idea that theatre is best experienced broken free from the confines of a traditional performance space. In past seasons, Bakerloo has performed at Academy Hall, West Hall and Mother's Coffee House on the campus of RPI, at Emma Willard School and the Round Lake Auditorium, and at coffee houses, bars, libraries and schools throughout the Northeast.
Unville Brazil, a new musical presented by FullStop Collective and written by company member Patrick Shaw, opens tonight at The Drilling Company. The musical also stars Becca Landis, another Bakerloovian. We would like to wish them the best of luck on the run of the show!
Show times will be Wednesday-Saturday at 8 PM with an additional performance June 6 at 8 PM.
The Drilling Company Theatre is located at 236 West 78th Street, between Amsterdam Avenue and Broadway. Tickets ($18) may be purchased online at www.fullstopcollective.org or by calling (212) 868-4444.
Congratulations to company member Adam Mathias who won the Best Book of a Musical Drama Desk Award for See Rock City & Other Destinations on May 23, 2011. He is one of the few winners to be honored for their contributions to Off-Broadway theater.
Mathias has created music for many of Bakerloo's past productions, including The Tempest, as well as adapting Hamlet: What Dreams May Come. Bakerloo is lucky to have him come on board again this summer to head the music of Twelfth Night.
