Audible—the audiobook company behind the critically acclaimed return Off-Broadway engagement of Harry Clarke, as well as the upcoming solo play Girls & Boys with Carey Mulligan—is gearing up to present a whole lot more at the Minetta Lane Theatre. The Greenwich Village theatre (home to both Harry Clarke and Girls & Boys) has been named Audible's new creative home for live performance in New York.
Audible will host and produce a wide variety of live performances at the Minetta Lane, including dramatic plays, comedic shows, panel discussions, and more, with Audible members receiving exclusive access to discounted tickets and related audio content.
As previously announced, Audible is set to produce a limited Off-Broadway engagement of the Royal Court Theatre production of Dennis Kelly's monologue play Girls & Boys next month at the Minetta Lane. Oscar and Tony nominee Mulligan will reprise her performance, which will be recorded and released as an audio play on Audible.
Audible will also produce The Path to Pride, an event inspired by the new Audible Original of the same name, and a live storytelling experience featuring personal stories around LGBT Pride co-hosted by Lance Bass and Nikky Levy on June 25.
“Since its earliest days, Audible has been committed to supporting professional actors in their craft and sharing their powerful performances with our listeners,” said Audible founder and CEO Don Katz in a statement. “We are thrilled to be producing live shows at the Minetta Lane Theatre and offering yet another way for people to experience the entertaining, voice-driven productions that define the Audible aesthetic.”
“We are equally proud to bring these outstanding live performances to our listeners globally, enabling those outside of New York to experience their own private performance of these productions,” Katz added.
The fall and winter lineups at the Minetta Lane Theatre will be announced in the coming months. Audible will also be announcing live performances in other cities in the near future.
