Dorchester Star - - REGIONAL -

CAM­BRIDGE — Dorch­ester Cen­ter for the Arts is pleased to host the Brown Box The­atre Project on Fri­day May 25, for “Broad­way Juke­box” in the Ge­orge B. Todd Per­for­mance Hall.

Kyler Taustin, founder of Brown Box The­atre Project, grew up along the East­ern Shore of Mary­land and wit­nessed first­hand the lack of ac­ces­si­ble, pro­fes­sional the­atre in the area. While Ocean City and its sur­round­ing re­gions had no lack of tourist at­trac­tions, there were few sources of pro­fes­sional the­atre any­where on the Del­marva Penin­sula.

Af­ter study­ing the­atre at Emer­son Col­lege in Bos­ton, Taustin took it upon him­self to bring sto­ries of the un­heard voice to those with lim­ited ac­cess to them. In 2009, Taustin founded Brown Box The­atre Project and be­gan pro­duc­ing high-qual­ity the­atre in ma­jor cities and tour­ing those pro­duc­tions to the East­ern Shore and be­yond to fill that void.

Brown Box is now cen­tered in Bos­ton, where they can use the vast artis­tic re­sources of the city to cast, re­hearse, and pro­duce their pro­duc­tions be­fore de­liv­er­ing them to com­mu­ni­ties in Mary­land, Delaware, Vir­ginia, and be­yond.

Brown Box be­lieves that all peo­ple deser ve easy ac­cess to the arts and the com­mu­nity ben­e­fits that they foster. Their mis­sion is to break down bar­ri­ers that sep­a­rate the masses from live the­atre by bring­ing the very best in per­for­mance, de­sign, and col­lab­o­ra­tion to un­con­ven­tional venues and un­der­served des­ti­na­tions to reach the widest au­di­ence pos­si­ble.

They im­ple­ment a bold ap­proach to their pro­duc­tions that con­nects au­di­ences and artists through vi­brant and en­light­en­ing ex­pe­ri­ences to trans­form the way the­atre is cre­ated and con­sumed.

“Broad­way Juke­box” is a mu­si­cal the­atre cabaret event, fea­tur­ing al­most 30 Broad­way songs from which to choose, with each per­for­mance uniquely based on the se­lec­tion of that evening’s au­di­ence. Upon ar­rival each au­di­ence mem­ber votes for their top three choices from a se­ries of dif­fer­ent mu­si­cal the­atre cat­e­gories, in­clud­ing “The Golden Age,” “Con­tem­po­rary Mu­si­cals,” “Dis­ney on Broad­way,” and more.

Brown Box cu­rates that night’s show on the spot in this in­ter­ac­tive, fam­ily-friendly evening, where they per­form what you, the au­di­ence, con­sider the best of Broad­way! Show­time is at 8 p.m. Call DCA for ticket in­for­ma­tion: 410-228-7782.
