Show Information:

Autobahn is a cycle of 7 short plays, all that take place in the confines of the front seat of a car. Highlighting the intimacy and authenticity of a drive, the scenes offer snapshots of conversations, arguments, and moments in the everyday American life.

The performances will be live streamed from the MMAS theatre. There will be no live audience. Couples, families, and “pods” are encouraged to audition for casting in scenes together. Intimate scenes will be cast with actual couples. 

MMAS will honor all CDC protocols and plans will be updated as necessary. The intention is to live stream Autobahn, keeping all actors and crew masked and socially distanced during recording. MMAS will continue to keep pace with the CDC’s recommendations and revert to individual recordings if necessary.
