Out Of the Box Theatrics Presents New Virtual Series PAST AND PRESENT Featuring BABY, INTO THE WOODS & More

Out of the Box Theatrics has announced ​Past and Present ​- a new virtual series highlighting previous OOTB productions while looking toward the future.

"When Covid-19 hit I started thinking alot about past productions and seasons as well as our community of artists and patrons," said Flemming. "I wanted to find a way to provide hope despite what I know is a dark time for our industry. So, I started thinking about what OOTB could do to remember the past as we look toward the future. Seeing our artists perform past work is a way to engage our community again and perhaps provide some joy and light for those who may need a reminder."

Selected productions from OOTB's last three seasons include ​Songs for a New World, Shoes & Baggage, Nocturne, Into the Woods​, and the Off Broadway Alliance nominated ​Baby ​(Best Musical Revival).

First incubated at the cell theatre in 2016, ​Shoes & Baggage​ is ​about the insatiable urge to purchase and possess beautiful things and the deeper feelings that propel this behavior.
