The Theater for a New Audience won’t move to its Frank Gehry–designed Fort Greene headquarters (rendering pictured) for quite a while, but that won’t stop the group from throwing a party in the neighborhood on Wednesday.
“We’re trying to get the community to know about us,” Rachel Lovett, director of the group’s capital campaign, told GO Brooklyn. “It gives us an edge, so that people know who we are before we get there.”
Held on the roof of the 30-story Forte Condos building, the fundraiser will feature food from Columbia Street Waterfront District eatery Korhogo 126, an open bar courtesy of Gnarly Vines and the Brooklyn Brewery, music by DJ Jamal Reid and art — including an all-Brooklynite show in one of the penthouses, giant-sized dominos on the roof and an interactive mural.
“You can see the building site from the roof deck,” said Lovett. “It’s a way to broaden the network of people who know us as we build.”
The Theater for a New Audience “Summer Bash” will take place from 6:30 pm to 10 pm on June 18 at the Forte Condos (Fulton Street at Ashland Place in Fort Greene). Tickets are $50-$75. For information, call (212) 229-2819 or visit www.tfana.org.
