Based on interviews with people who have been involved with failing productions, the new cabaret is curated and directed by Civilians 2015-2016 R&D Group Members Sanaz Ghajar and Colette Robert in collaboration with Civilians 2015-2016 Field Research Team. Led by artistic director Cosson and founded in 2001, The Civilians create new theatre from creative investigations. Recent credits include Another Word for Beauty; Pretty Filthy; Mr. Burns, A Post-Electric Play; and The Great Immensity. Last season, the company was the first-ever theatre company in residence at The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Let Me Ascertain You: Flops, Failures and Fiascos will be presented at 9 PM. Tickets are $15 and can be purchased by visiting metropolitanroom.com.
