The Mechanicals is a theater company dedicated to producing new, classic, and underperformed plays that touch on our collective connection and spirit.
Much like the Mechanicals of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, we are a group of multi-disciplinary artists who love creating together and investing in the New York City community.
Founder Alexis Confer believes public service and the arts should be one and the same. We invite you to join us on this artistic journey!
AS YOU LIKE IT
June 20th to 30th 2019 @ Teatro Latea 107 Suffolk St NYC
Come away with us to the Summer of 1969, where our production of As You Like it takes place. Rosalind, with her cousin by her side, is banished to the forest and struggling to figure out who she is as a person and what her heart really wants. Explore the love, peace, turmoil, music, social clashes, and the politics of the day through the lens of the Bard. The names and times may change, but for the stage of our world all the men and women remain merely players.
