Dear MAC Friends!

I am so thrilled to be writing to you with the wonderful news that we are returning to in-person performances in time to celebrate our 35th anniversary together! We have safety protocols in place to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19, which you can read about on our website, atthemac.org. As the pandemic changes, so will our policies and we will keep you updated.

This season is packed with your favorites. Music fans will enjoy everything from electrifying BoDeans, to the legendary Oak Ridge Boys, to The Texas Tenors. Get ready for a Mardi Gras and Zydeco party with the Dirty Dozen Brass Band at Mardi Gras Mambo. I also look forward to sharing one of the most compelling concerts I’ve seen, in an evening with Tony Award-winning Broadway star, Heather Headley.

We are happy to remain the home of our resident companies Buffalo Theatre Ensemble and New Philharmonic. BTE brings live theater back with Stove Toucher, a one-man show written and performed by Kurt Naebig, and closes the season with the hysterical One Man, Two Guvnors. New Philharmonic Orchestra and Maestro Muspratt are putting on a blockbuster season starting with a Spooktakular concert filled with themes from your favorite horror cinema classics, followed by American melodies in Dvořák’s New World Symphony featuring the incomparable David Taylor playing one of the most complex violin pieces, culminating in a concert version of West Side Story.

Following the blockbuster Frida Kahlo exhibition this summer, the Cleve Carney Museum of Art will open its season with COD alum and brilliant contemporary artist Tony Fitzpatrick. We will close the MAC season in 2022 by bringing back the beloved free outdoor Lakeside Summer series!

We look forward to seeing you and engaging in thought-provoking, joy-inducing, exciting LIVE entertainment. I look forward to seeing you back at the MAC soon!

Enjoy the show!

Diana Martinez

Dear Friends of BTE,
“I regard the theater as the greatest of all art forms, the most immediate way in which a human being can share with another the sense of what it is to be a human being.” -Thornton Wilder
 
Buffalo Theatre Ensemble is incredibly proud to embark on our 35th Anniversary Season! We can hardly wait to welcome people back into a space where as the house lights darken, the hush of the collective room tunes into active listening, and we share our experience.
 
It is with enormous optimism and gratitude that we look forward to the reopening of the theatre where we can continue to explore, enrich, and engage with each other through Giving Stories Life. All three of our productions are a celebration of people on the precipice of change, who move forward with courage and joy — a theme which seems appropriate given the last couple of years — and as we all look to the future.
 
Please know that as our subscribers, our extended family, we value your safety, as well as that of our artists; we are practicing safety guidelines set forth by the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention, the State of Illinois, and the McAninch Arts Center/ College of DuPage. These guidelines will be modified based on evolving standards.
 
Thank you for joining us on the next steps of our anniversary and more! With great affection,
Sincerely,
 
The Ensemble

The McAninch Arts Center season celebrates the memory of Joan Frank for a lifetime of service, thanks to the support of family and friends.
 
 
 

BTE’s mantra is “Giving Stories Life.” And Stove Toucher is such a wonderful story with which to continue BTE’s journey with you, our audience.

I’ve known Kurt for over thirty years, but, when I watched a staged reading of this show in progress, in March 2020, just before we went dark because of the pandemic, the experience was filled with laughter, surprise and such great honesty and compassion.

Throughout this season, BTE’s 35th Anniversary, we are focused on presenting stories that are very sincere, sometimes funny and sometimes moving. All three productions this season are heartwarming, and about people on the brink of great change, which seems particularly appropriate given the state of our world, for all of us.

We hope you enjoy Stove Toucher! We’ve missed you; it is wonderful to be in this shared space of theatre, again, with all of you.
