A SEASON OF SHOWS
LIVE FROM YOUR HOME AND OURS
Our subscriptions bring you theater in your PJs! With the LUXURIES of no late seating issues, no worries about silencing your cellphone, unlimited restroom breaks, and more. We’re even catering to those of you who may want to eventually get dressed with select packages that offer two in-theater productions when safety allows.
MCC Theater, in association with The Parsnip Ship and Business Lunch Productions, will present This Is Where We Go, a six-part radio play podcast developed with The Parsnip Ship’s Radio Roots Writers Group. MCC’s first commission looks closer at the different ways that theater can be created and produced and was inspired by the Octavia Butler quote “All that you touch / You Change. / All that you Change / Changes you. / The only lasting truth / Is Change. / God is Change.”
The Radio Roots Writers Group includes Amara Brady, Jessie Rivera DeBruin, Gina Femia, and Nina Ki. The series will be directed by Tamilla Woodard.

It’s the 1990s and in Lagos, Nigeria, the NOLLYWOOD film industry is exploding and taking the world by storm. Ayamma dreams of stardom while working at her parents’ travel agency alongside her lovable and celebrity-obsessed sister Dede. When Ayamma lands an audition for a new film by Gbenga Ezie, Nigeria’s hottest director, she comes head-to-head with Gbenga’s former leading lady, Fayola. Tensions flare just as sparks start flying between Ayamma, the aspiring ingénue, and Wale, Nollywood’s biggest heartthrob, in this hilarious new play about dreaming big.

After one boy dies by suicide, Mr. Isaiah struggles to figure out how to save the Black and Brown boys he teaches from a world that tries to crush their softness.
