VOYEUR Offers Special Mother's Day Package

Bated Breath Theatre Company will present a special Mother's Day edition of its live hit VOYEUR: THE WINDOWS OF TOULOUSE-LAUTREC on Saturday, May 8, 2021.

In addition to this acclaimed intimate performance experience, each ticket holder will also receive a bouquet from Starbright Florals, lip gloss from Dr. PawPaw, a card from Li-Lac Chocolates offering a free chocolate bar with any purchase at their store, and little bag of chocolates. Tickets are $100 at www.unmakinglautrecplay.com.

VOYEUR is an open air, immersive theatrical experience that guides an intimate eight-person audience through the dreams of iconic artist Toulouse-Lautrec as he recalls his final absinthe-laced years living and working in Montmartre. It is a unique blend of theater, dance, art, walking tour, live music, opera and puppetry. The sidewalks, doorways and windows of Greenwich Village become the setting for VOYEUR as live accompaniment collides with the city's soundscape, transporting attendees into the bohemian world of 1899 Paris.

VOYEUR is conceived and directed by Mara Lieberman with puppet design and construction by James Ortiz (Hercules, The Woodsman); sets by Sadra Tehrani, Lina Younes and Ebony Burton; costumes by Christopher Metzger; lighting by Ebony Burton and Keith A. Truax; and sound design by Mark Van Hare. Dmitiriy and Maryia Umanskiy serve as music directors with choreography by Leila Mire and Kelsey Rondeau with Nate Carter. The cast includes Bianca Bulgarelli, Melissa Cabey, Sophia Carlin, Ever Chavez, Mollie Downes, Natasha Frater, Sarah Gagarin, JoAnna Geffert, Clint Hromsco, Eileen Kielty, Megan Lako, Brooke Larimer, Adam Lawrence, Colleen McCurley, Ella McMillion, Josh McWhortor, Annika Rudolph, Jacqueline Shoda-Iwasaki, Fé Torres, and Katherine Winter.

In an effort to maintain additional safety during the Covid-19 pandemic, audience members will be required to wear a mask at all times and maintain a safe social distance for the duration of the performance. Hand sanitizing stations are available at stops throughout the tour. This immersive performance is hosted primarily outdoors, with one short venture indoors into a spacious atmosphere capable of safe social distancing. A flexible ticket exchange policy will be offered to those who may feel ill in order to facilitate responsible event participation. Audience members are asked to check local weather forecasts and dress accordingly.

Bated Breath Theatre Company creates immersive, participatory theatre that wakes up the body, resurrects sleeping histories, and electrifies non-traditional theatre spaces. Bated Breath had just crossed 100 performances of their site-specific hit, Unmaking Toulouse-Lautrec at Madame X when the pandemic forced a pause in performances. The Company premiered its interactive art auction play Beneath the Gavel Off-Broadway at 59E59 Theatres in 2017 and has performed the play on a recurring basis at Feinstein's/54 Below. They've performed their award-winning Freedom: In 3 Acts as part of the New Haven Festival of Arts and Ideas and at the New England Museum Association Annual Conference as part of the keynote address. Bated Breath's short play The Pride of Christopher Street was part of the Up Close Festival at the New Ohio Theatre. Bated Breath is also currently working on a new interactive wine tasting play in collaboration with wine journalist Jane Anson. For more information, visit www.batedbreaththeatre.org.
