AN EXISTENTIAL CABARET Opens Brown Paper Box Co.'s Season

AN EXISTENTIAL CABARET Opens Brown Paper Box Co.'s Season Inspired by life's great mysteries presented in the regional premiere of Branden Jacobs-Jenkins' Pulitzer Prize finalist EVERYBODY, "An Existential Cabaret" continues Brown Paper Box Co.'s relationship with original cabaret series at Mary's Attic in Andersonville. As we begin to explore life, love, and death through Branden Jacobs-Jenkins' modern morality play, guests at Mary's Attic can expect to hear musical stylings inspired by EVERYBODY's characters & themes including Love, Death, Stuff, Friendship, Family, Understanding, and even "God." For only $10 in advance and $15 at the door, join the existential journey with the Brown Paper Box Co. family - and a few special guests - May 4th and 5th at Mary's Attic. This 2-night cabaret has a little something for everyone and everybody.
