No Summer Vacation for Titan Theatre Company! Even though our regularly scheduled 2014/15 season has completed - there are still plenty of Titan Happenings going on!
"Like what?" you ask?
Well for starters...
This past Friday, June 5th, Titan Theatre Company was honored to join BAM, The Whitney, Roundabout Theatre, The Park Avenue Armory and various other New York City cultural organizations representing at The Metropolitan Museum of Art for Teens Take the Met.
Teens Take the Met is an exciting event where the Museum is reserved only for teenagers for an entire evening. They are given the opportunity to not only take over the Museum, but also to interact with some of the most exciting cultural organizations in the city through demonstrations and activities.
Titan represented with a Battle of the Bards!
A Shakespearean insult face off - where the winning team gets to cast and direct the losers in the balcony scene from Romeo and Juliet.
The backdrop in the American Theatre Wing was perfection
The insults were literally flying
The groundlings were rowdy
And we won't say we had the best booth - but we definitely had the loudest (and just maybe the most fun).
Hey! When else can you yell and spike the mic, Shakespearean Style, in the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Over 3,000 teenagers participated in Taking the Met. All in all, not a bad audience count for a Shakespearean insult showdown.
Check back for more exciting Titan Happenings soon!
