The Brooklyn Academy of Music (a 150-year old institution with a theater, cinema, opera house, and arts education programs) opened the doors of its newest venue last week. The BAM Fisher holds an black box theater for experimental performances, a state-of-the-art rehearsal space, an educational workshop room, and a rooftop bar. I had the pleasure of producing an audio tour for the new building in collaboration with producer Brendan Baker.
You can hear the tour by calling (718) 269-0248, or click on the individual stops online here. I most recommend listening to artist Jose Parla’s description of his new mural, the tour of the theater, and the rooftop tour.
Producing this tour converted me to a full-fledged BAM fan. I’m excited to check out their showing of Philip Glass’s opera Einstein on the Beach next week!
