The acclaimed producing company En Garde Arts brings you BASETRACK Live, named one of The New York Times’ Top Ten shows of 2014. Based on the true stories of families and Marines who served in Afghanistan, the show was praised as “a viscerally powerful depiction of war and its aftermath” and “a superb, moving work” by National Book Award winner Phil Klay (Redeployment). Combining live performance, immersive projection design and a dynamic electro-acoustic score, the show provides an intimate portrait of military families both during deployment and after.
“…an exhilarating evening of documentary theatre.” —The New York Times
