Ina Chadwick’s MouseMuse Productions announces its alliance with The Bijou Theatre located at 275 Fairfield Ave., Bridgeport.
The Bijou Theatre is rapidly building its reputation as one of the hottest arts and entertainment venues in Connecticut. By aligning with well-known production entities such as MouseMuse Productions, The Bijou Theatre is enhancing its entertainment agenda. Maintaining its 100-year old history, the management of The Bijou Theatre invested in a complete renovation as a 202-seat multipurpose movie house and concert hall, presenting live theater and all varieties of entertainment. Amenities inside The Bijou Theatre include a top shelf bar with glass barware, table service for tapas, and a cabaret-style atmosphere.
MouseMuse Productions has been producing live storytelling events in many venues in Fairfield County for the past three years. Now, the alliance with The Bijou Theatre further enhances the power of the personal narrative as entertainment. The series entitled “Real People. Real Stories,” encompasses ensemble shows, both written and performed by the authors, (the owners of their own stories) as well as one-person shows that are inspirational and transformational in their truth telling. They are at all times riveting, poignant, often humorous, but always entertaining and provocative for further community conversation.
The first show being presented at The Bijou Theatre by MouseMuse Productions will be on September 29, “Under the Covers, Where Our Voices Have Been Hiding.” This is a one-time exclusive performance by a talented ensemble cast of mostly Fairfield County women who range in age from 30 to 81. The show was first produced by Jill Jaysen at the Seabury Center in Westport, last year and played to rave reviews and sell-out crowds two nights in a row. Each of the cast members has written their own story as if they were sharing in their diaries.
