With a spirit of resilience, adaptation, and invitation, a group of theaters across the country came together to create the Play At Home project, a series of 10-minute plays commissioned to inspire joy and connection for all.
16th Street is proud to announce Associate Artist Juan Muñoz as the recipient of 16th Street’s first Play At Home commission. Juan was in Into the Beautiful North, A Xmas Cuento Remix and the Pop Up of Los Tequileros as an actor. He is also a wonderful writer, creating imaginative and meaningful plays for our education program with a great respect for youth.
16th Street pledges to put funds in artists’ pockets: right now. We loved the spirit of this idea so we joined in the fun. Juan is in some pretty excellent company. Thank you to Baltimore Center Stage, Long Wharf Theatre, The Public Theater, Repertory Theater of St Louis, & Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company for creating Play at Home.
Play at Home goals are simple… (in their words)
PAY SOME ARTISTS!
Freelance artists are among the folks hit hardest by COVID-19 closures. We want to support them in doing what they do best – creating!
INVITE PEOPLE TO GET OFFLINE AND INTO THEIR IMAGINATIONS!
Part of the irreplaceable magic of live theater lives in the unmediated space between artists and the audience’s imagination. We make worlds together! Play At Home is an invitation to unplug the tech, and plug into your creativity. You can binge watch The Office later. You’ve got a brand-new library of short plays at your fingertips!
INSPIRE JOY AND CONNECTION!
Read alone! Read with your friends virtually! Read with your roommates, families, pets, whomever! And, if you want, share what you’re up to by tagging #PlayAtHomePlays.
