MASTER CLASS at The Gallery Players in Brooklyn

I've decided to celebrate moving back to Brooklyn with some events set in this borough, and here's the first one:  Going to see a production of Master Class at the renowned Gallery Players!  I used to see their productions quite a lot before moving to Queens, so I'm glad to head over again. Master Class centers on the legendary diva Maria Callas,  and "Terrence McNally’s play shows her late in life, teaching a master class for young singers. As she coaxes, prods and inspires students into giving the performances of their lives, she reveals her own history."

Here's some info about The Gallery Players: "The Gallery Players (TGP) has provided Brooklyn audiences with quality theater since 1967. Located in Park Slope but beloved on both sides of the Brooklyn Bridge, The Gallery Players is dedicated to producing classic and contemporary plays and musicals as well as premiering new works. Recipient of the Off-Off Broadway Review’s 2000 Award for Lifetime Achievement, and Innovative Theater (IT) awards...  TGP resides in a 99-seat theater in Park Slope, Brooklyn. TGP’ s reputation, critical acclaim, and popularity among audiences and artists puts it in an enviable position among its volunteer-only and Off-Off Broadway comparables."

How to get there: The closest train station to The Gallery Players is "9th Street" for the R, "4th Avenue" for the F. This is the same station; one train is elevated and the other subterranean. Then, you just walk along 4th Avenue over to 14 Street.

How to find us: We will meet at 2:30pm for the 3pm performance. As memory serves, this is a former school building, so just get as close as you can to where people pick up their tickets.  I will be holding a hand-printed sign reading MEETUP.

Admission: Admission for Master Class is $18 general admission, $14 for seniors. We do have our own modest $1 fee to help defray the costs of maintaining this meetup group, payable to the organizer. 

You can purchase your own ticket online by clicking here: http://galleryplayers.com/box-office/  It might be possible to purchase a ticket that very afternoon, but would be subject to availability--why be disappointed?

After the show, we can also go up to Fifth Avenue to check out some local places to eat.

    It was a thought provoking afternoon. Now I want to know everything about the short life of this renown opera singer. If this is true her life was tragic. The group once again - great mix- a great review over lunch. Looking forward to more Bklyn events.

    The play was fascinating and dinner/conversation afterwards very enjoyable.

    I really enjoyed this production--the actress playing Maria Callas was capable of such passion in her monologues! Gallery Players has very nice seating, too, for such an inexpensive house. After the matinee, GA, Cynthia, Donna, and I strolled down Fifth Avenue and found a serviceable Indian place where we discussed our newfound curiosity about the real Callas. Brava, ladies!

    Part of the art of attending these wonderful events is getting there.. mapping and transportation..It looks like there is a hand held GPS device or an app......(in the old days we would call it a compas}I have been fortunate to find young people who are very helpful.. know that station from community jobs in Bklyn.

    Thanks Linda. Atlantic Avenue is easy. Appreciate the baby steps with me. When I worked in Bklyn had to take car service on weekends.....

    I had a question about trains to this location. Like it says on the site, "9 Street/ 4 Avenue" is THE closest. As an alternative--but one requiring more time allowance--you could take the IRT (2,3,4,5) to "Atlantic Avenue" and then get out of the station to get the B63 bus. This is also called the 5 Avenue bus. Then you'd take that to 14 St. I don't see any travel advisory yet for this weekend, but some train always comes to that station, no matter what else is out. But as I say, this would take more time and you'd have to look for the B63.

    Well, Angelique, it does have more performances, but they are deeper into Holy Week, which I personally couldn't do. But if those dates work for you, go for it!
