Art at Home

Art at Home

We believe art has the ability to keep us connected and spread joy, even in the midst of uncertainty. So we've gathered a list of suggestions for how you can continue experiencing art, from home. We’ll continue to update over the next few weeks with fun and inspiring ways to keep the arts in your life!


Get excited for the 2020-2021 Theatre Season

  • Watch the original film of Kinky Boots (2005) that inspired the Broadway musical! Or, stream the musical on Broadway HD.
  • The two-person scary story The Woman in Black is based on a terrifying read by Susan Hill – and was also adapted into a movie starring Daniel Radcliffe.
  • Enjoy an early holiday viewing of one of the several film versions of Miracle on 34th Street – we recommend the 1947 film, with Maureen O’Hara, Edmund Gwynn and Natalie Wood.
  • Get ready to laugh and learn a little about the Belle Époque era of French culture, in preparation for Georges Feydeau's farcical play A Flea In Her Ear.
  • George Orwell’s Animal Farm is always timely – revisit this classic satire before it comes to our stage in 2021.
  • Learn the background behind the story, and find a good history of Joan of Arc to get ready for Mother of the Maid, which closes out the Black Box repertory season in the spring.
  • And finally, put on a playlist of Elvis and Johnny Cash to get in the mood for the spring musical Million Dollar Quartet. How about “Blue Suede Shoes” or “Ring of Fire?”
