VIRTUAL STUDENT MATINEES
EDUCATORS! Are you looking for a way to connect your students to the arts? Diversify your curriculum? Take a virtual field trip?
As we await a future where we can all be in the same space again, we realized that virtual theater enables us to reach so many more people and bring new communities into our theater.
MCC brings you the best of both of our worlds – our compelling and conversation provoking shows and our education program that fosters discovery and exploration of student’s artistic voices. Our Virtual Student Matinees will bring a mix of prerecorded one-act MCC Live Labs and a workshop hosted by a MCC Master Teaching Artist, all in an hour and a half!
We hope you can join us.

Maribel loves costume dramas and her daughter Jessie loves her. On any given day, their daily Downton Abbey watch is punctuated by the plunking of piano keys and the flurry of strings, but today there’s so much more on the menu. Maribel really wants to fix her daughter’s love life. And despite her mother’s many diversions, Jessie wants her mother to face the real music: the world is changing, and they could both use a little fresh air.

GOOD AS NEW
Revisiting this acclaimed work – a brutal one-act comedy about a learning-to-drive daughter who comes face-to-face with the mother she thinks has let her down – Good as New first played in 1993-94 as part of MCC’s (then called Manhattan Class Company) One Acts. It was then extended to a full-length work and presented by MCC in 1997.
