BAX to Present MAPPLETHORPE by Max Steele, 5/2-4
BAX presents MAPPLETHORPE by Max Steele, Friday-Saturday, May 2-3 at 8:00pm and Sunday, May 4 at 6:00pm. Tickets: $15 General | $8 Low-Income [Buy Tickets].
MAPPLETHORPE tells his origin story, explaining how he made his dream of being a singer come true, with a little help from the Sky. MAPPLETHORPE leads the audience through his journey of self-discovery and the realization that with great talent comes great responsibility. With big dreams come big nightmares, and MAPPLETHORPE's journey from the gutter to the stage will serve as both an inspiration and a cautionary tale. MAPPLETHORPE is a cabaret intervention, a nightclub act for scaredy-cats. Whether or not you know it, and whether or not you're willing to admit it, you're being held captive against your will, and MAPPLETHORPE is here, just in the nick of time, to pay your ransom.
Mapplethorpe was created during the BAX Artist in Residence (AIR) program which provides participating artists with one to two years of uninterrupted artistic, technical, and administrative support, as well as the rehearsal space and guidance necessary to take chances, refine their craft and expand their horizons.
From the Open Studio Series to the Works-In-Progress Series, the AIR program offers a rare opportunity to follow a work and engage the creators in a full arc of development.
