The Broken Ear Setlist: Songs from Ohio

Directed by Anne Kauffman & Caitlin Sullivan

APRIL 15 & 16 | 7PM EDT
$40 in-person, socially distanced seating

Due to pandemic safety protocols, there will be an extremely limited supply of tickets.


Over the past few weeks, The Bengsons, piece by piece productions, and their team of collaborators have been experimenting at St. Ann’s Warehouse on the development of a new musical work for a newly reopening world. We invite you to participate in a hybrid “congregation” of in-person and virtual audiences, to share an evening of songs, parables, and incantations of loss, healing, and faith.

Featuring
Barrie Lobo McLain, Vuyo Sotashe and Allan K. Washington, Friends

WELCOME BACK TO ST. ANN’S WAREHOUSE

We’re thrilled to be opening our doors to you.

The Bengsons are creating a hybrid space where we can reconnect and see what it’s like to go back into the theater. We are offering tickets to a live, in-person audience while continuing to serve a limited audience on Zoom. This is a perfect way to tiptoe back gradually and to maintain the intimacy the Bengsons have been sharing virtually throughout the pandemic.
