How do I get tickets?
Click the button at the top, labeled "tickets", and choose the date that works best for you to attend! The link will take you to an outside page called "Eventbrite", which is what we use through FringeNYC to help us track ticket sales. You can also find our ticket link at http://www.fringenyc.org/basic_page.php?ltr=G
How can I get a Comp Ticket?
If you are Press, Equity (we are currently operating under an Equity Showcase Code), or otherwise have a special request for a Comp ticket, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will respond to you promptly!
What can I expect from a "Dance/Theatre" show?
Our show uses dance, music, poetry and straight acting to tell our story. It does not fit into one particular genre, perhaps in the same way that real life often cannot be easily categorized. We'll try to communicate with you, the audience, in lots of different ways- we hope that some of them will move you.
Is the play "immersive"? What does that mean?
The Great Brown Bear is a story meant to transport you to a world outside yourself. It is also (some might say) a story that belongs to all of us- and because of this, we are asking you, the audience, to help us tell it. This means you might be asked to engage in the story in some nonverbal way during the performance- i.e. handing an actor something, touching an actor's hand, dancing with us (please, do!) or anything else that might help us tell the story. If this makes you uncomfortable, we free you from any responsibility to be or act any particular way! Just come, watch, and listen.
Why is there a fee for ticket sales?
Eventbrite charges a processing fee to host our ticket sales. We understand that fees are super frustrating, and we look forward to being able to present The GBB to you without fees in the future!
