CasablancaBox Sara Farrington & Reid Farrington

CasablancaBox ran on HERE's Mainstage from April 5-29, 2017.

About the show

2 Drama Desk Nominations
Unique Theatrical Experience
& Reid Farrington, Outstanding Projection Design

CasablancaBox lifts the veil of the eponymous classic film to reveal the stories behind the legends. Rife with glamour, war, censorship, sexism, racism, addiction and the refugee crisis of 1940s Hollywood, CasablancaBox is madcap and affecting, moving and political, romantic and relevant. With an intricately woven multi-narrative script and video score, CasablancaBox is an imagined "making of" tribute to the movie you thought you knew.

Commissioned, developed, and produced through the HERE Artist Residency Program (HARP). Additional support for CasablancaBox provided by the New York State Council on the Arts, the Axe-Houghton Foundation, and the Venturous Theater Fund of the Tides Foundation.
