Boston, MA… History At PlayTM, LLC (HAP, LLC) has garnered international applause for their Immersive Living History Experiences, chronicling the lives of legendary women who changed society. On Friday January 22, 2021, at 7:30 PM ET (GMT-5), HAP, LLC travels to 18th Century England and the creation of a theatrical empire with Mrs. Baker, Governess General of Kentish Theatre, a living history performance, featuring Actor and Historical Interpreter Kate Mechedou as British Theatre Impresario, Sarah Baker. This Pay-Per-HAP livestream production is produced by HAP, LLC, and Hosted by HAP, LLC Founder and Artistic Director Judith Kalaora.
In this livestream episodic series, Pay-Per-HAP introduces viewers to Sarah Baker: A provincial dancer and single mother who uses her business acumen to become one of the most successful self-made women of her day. Commencing in 1776, as the widowed Baker assumes control of a rag-tag collection of performers, we experience the delight as her empire grows, and as with all success, her troubles grow in direct proportion. Ultimately, we encounter an older - but not necessarily wiser - Mrs. Baker as she reveals her secret: How could a humble dancer afford to build a successful theatre empire? Mrs. Baker muses on her own legacy, including inspiring one of Britain's greatest writers. We ask ourselves: Who is responsible for the creation of myth? Approximately 45 minutes, followed by real-time audience Q&A.
