Manhattan Theatre Club is premiering monthly original Snapshots, each 10-20 minutes in length and created exclusively for the digital format, inspired by our current moment in theatre and the world. The series kicked off last month with RITUAL, written by Alexis Scheer and directed by Alexis Scheer & Gabrielle Carrubba . Premiere dates for future Snapshot performances will be announced soon.
While physical stages remain dark across America, Manhattan Theatre Club invites audiences to gather virtually as a community and find connection, inspiration, and entertainment through a series of virtual theatrical experiences from the comfort of their homes.
