Theater-Music Talk

Tiny Box Theater (NYC) and Ya Chin Chang (Hong Kong) in collaboration with David Lamoureux (NYC) and Post Theatrical (Pittsburgh) present THE MAILBOX, an experience that unfolds through theatrical text, original illustrations, audio and video (with closed captioning), text-based puzzles, and branching story interactives. Buy your ticket any time before May 14 and the experience will begin to unfold from May 17 – June 6.

THE MAILBOX invites you to join the Worldwide Wildlife Investigative Firm (WWIF) on your first case: When all of the mailboxes in the world disappear overnight, you are tasked with tracking the truth. But never fear, WWIF’s Lynx, Hound, Chameleon, and Raccoon are on hand to help aid you in your investigation. If you go digging, swimming, and climbing, you may uncover more than one mystery at work.

Tickets and information for THE MAILBOX  are available at www.posttheatrical.org. Tickets are on sale now through May 14. Mailings are postmarked on May 17, the experience continues through June 6th, with website access through June 30th.

Grammy and Emmy award-winning singer Eydie Gormé is known for her gold record hits, including “If He Walked Into My Life,” “Sabor a Mi,” “This Could Be the Start of Something Big” and so many more.

An Updated ReOpening Plan per New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo who announced that all capacity restrictions will be removed on businesses, including Broadway, starting May 19. The reopening plan, which applies across New York, New Jersey and Connecticut, will lift restrictions on theaters, restaurants, museums, shops and Broadway, which was specifically mentioned. However, New York will still require businesses to enforce six feet of distance between patrons, which may not allow some venues to reach full capacity. If all attendees are fully vaccinated or can show recent proof of a negative COVID-19 test, the distance requirement is waived. All sounds good, but do you really think Broadway can open under the prevailing circumstances? They can’t possibly make money with the hefty cost of bringing a production to a Broadway house. Broadway is holding fast on a fall re-opening ???? Off and off-Broadway will certainly fair better . . . sooner. Am I being too pessimistic? How comfortable will you be sitting in a Broadway theater?

The Delacorte Theatre in Central Park is waiting for you! With as much care as possible, the only thing missing is you. Expectations are for a Public Theater production in July. Meantime join today. Give a gift of $10, and be a part of bringing back Free Shakespeare in the Park.  HERE.
