What is BRICstudio?
BRICstudio, a program of BRIC/Brooklyn Information & Culture, is an alternative space for new and emerging performance. Our 74 seat, cabaret-style black box theater is located in the heart of Brooklyn’s Fort Greene cultural district and provides a platform for the development of new works in theater, dance, music and multi-disciplinary performance. BRICstudio also provides subsidized rehearsal, rental and performance space for non venue-based artists and arts organizations.

Led by Roy Nathanson, the Jazz Passengers “upend the formula of a regular jazz gig” (NY Times). The Supremes Project finds them in a typically romantic and mischievous mood, interpreting the music of the beloved girl group.
