Six months ago, Mosaic Theater in Washington, DC cut its budget in half and eliminated hundreds of thousands of dollars in projected revenue from ticket sales. Port Of Harlem has been documenting these challenges and how companies and organizations have been altering their companies and products to meet this new environment.  Mosaic is meeting these challenges with these two new productions.

Dear Mapel
Monday, October 26 – Saturday, October 31, 7:30p

Combining live performance with multi-camera video production, this workshop breaks out of the confines of Zoom we've become so accustomed to and drops audiences into a theatrical world.

Dear Mapel, by award-winning, DC-based, multidisciplinary artist Psalmayene 24, is Psalm's very personal new play about growing up in Brooklyn, losing his virginity, and reconnecting with a loved one who has passed, through a series of letters both real and imagined.

Natsu Onoda Power (Mosaic’s Charm; Georgetown University) will direct the performance and with percussion from DC artist Jabari Exum (Marvel’s Black Panther). The production is a free, ticketed event and premieres via live stream.
