With Open-Air Series, Mile Square Theatre Resumes Live PerformancesAug 29, 2021 08:42AM ● By Claire Byers
Beginning in September, Mile Square Theatre, with financial support from the Hoboken Business Alliance will present a special series of outdoor performances marking MST’s return to live shows.
MST’s open-air production of the beloved comic sendup of the Bard, The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged) [revised], will run from September 16 to October 2, at the Sinatra Park Amphitheatre.
On September 25 and 26, MST will present En Plein Air, a series of performances by a spectrum of artists, including Dancers of the MET, performing a collection of song, music and choreography by resident performers of the Metropolitan Opera in New York City; James and Jerome, a duo of NYC musician-storytellers; On the Waterfront Storytellers, a collective of Moth-style performers; and the MST Dance Academy Performance Group. The series will take place at the newly developed 7th and Jackson Plaza, in Hoboken.
“Since March 2020, we have only been able to produce virtual work, and we’re excited to finally get back to presenting live performance,” says MST’s artistic director, Chris O’Connor. “We’re grateful for the support of the Hoboken Business Alliance. Both the HBA and MST see these performances as a celebration of our city returning to the vibrant state it was before the pandemic. We hope to see many local residents—as well as out-of-town visitors—come out to see the shows and enjoy Hoboken’s wonderful restaurants and businesses. Hoboken is back and it’s better than ever.”
