Undermain Theatre is keeping it fresh with a fall season that features three new streaming series. They will all be virtual, but Undermain hopes to resume hosting in-person shows come 2021.
The first series is called In Concert Undermain. It features bands recording live sets in the Undermain basement. This free streaming music is available on the Undermain website through Vimeo.
- The band Caftan featuring Cory Kosel, Jake Nice and Braden Socia, will perform a set of original psychedelic folk songs and stream until August 19th.
- The series ends with Open Classical, performing classical music streaming from August 20 – September 5.
The second series is titled Archives Undermain and will showcase a video of the Undermain Theatre’s 2014 production of We Are Proud To Present A Presentation by Jackie Sibblies Drury. Subscribers to the Live at Undermain Subscription Series will have the opportunity to watch this stream for free. This production was chosen for its timely discussion of race and racial identity and is streaming from September 16 to October 4, 2020.
Finally, Virtual Undermain is a digital platform that will feature works created for the virtual stage. Subscription Series subscribers will get a $5 discount on tickets.
- In October 2020, audiences can enjoy the digital stream of ST. NICHOLAS by Conor McPherson and starring Artistic Director Bruce DuBose.
- Opening January 2021, will be THINGS MISSING/MISSED, a co-production with the Danielle Georgiou Dance Group, directed by Associate Artistic Director Danielle Georgiou.
