Macbeth Opening Night Party

The Campbell Lobby of the BAM Harvey Theater was dressed to impress Tuesday night, as BAM members celebrated the opening night performance, and US premiere, of Cheek by Jowl's Macbeth. With the help of our generous sponsors and a very enthusiastic, well-dressed, groups of actors, the party proved to be quite a hit! - read on for more details!

Benefactor and Producers Council members joined the company of Cheek by Jowl to ring in the 2 week run of Macbeth here at BAM. With a relationship of nearly 20 years, it was a pleasure, as always, to welcome our friends across the pond. Cheek by Jowl first came to BAM in 1994 with the production of As You Like It and have continued to entertain the Brooklyn audience throughout the years.

Guests were served a speciality Brooklyn Gin cocktail, "Three Witches", created by mixologist Stephanie Schneider from Huckleberry Bar. The combination of smoke and citrus made for an excellent and creative beverage that proved to be a huge hit among the crowd. We can't wait to see what Brooklyn Gin comes up with for our King Lear opening night party!

As always, the very generous and always tasty, Brooklyn Brewery supplied us with endless amounts of beer while Fleurs Bella beautified the Campbell Lobby with the creative and stunning eye they're known for.

Although there is limited availability for the remainder of this run, call 718.636.4100 for inquiries. This performance of Macbeth is not to be missed!
