Cross the threshold to Cleveland's up-close, personal and intimate theatre.
Now on Stage:
by James Ijames
directed by Cory Molner
October 15- October 30
Gus is an artist. Vanessa is an actress. Gus wants to be presented in a major exhibition for artists of color, so he hires Vanessa to perform as Balkonaé Townsend, a brash and political artist that will fit the museum’s desire for “new voices.” Everything is great, until Balkonaé takes over and Gus has to deal with the mess he’s made. This plays spins out of control as it explores issues of race, gender, sexuality, and art.

What if theatre weren't a mirror reflecting the familiar, but an opening into unknown territory? What if there were no fourth wall?
What if, instead of going to the theatre to watch a play, you crossed the threshold into the world of the play to experience it?
Theatre that expands the imagination and extends the conventional boundaries of language, structure, space, and performance that challenges the conventional notions of what theatre is.
What sort of theatre would this be?
