The Brick Theater Announces Lineup For Archival Streaming Series Through May 14 and More
The Brick team has been working relentlessly to respond, adjust, stay afloat, create new opportunities and plan for the future. They had just gotten started when the pandemic that halted the world also halted them.
While The Brick has had to postpone many exciting projects, they are finding ways to bring audience and artists together virtually, until that glorious day when we can share space with each other again.
The Brick Archival Screening Series is committed to bringing you high quality online premieres of theatrical productions, filmed and edited by Jon Burklund of Zanni Productions.
Each production will launch on The Brick YouTube Channel every Thursday at 8pm EST. Members of the creative teams and representatives from The Brick will join the audience in the chat during the premiere.
Once a production has premiered, it will be available for viewing any time, any day.
