Voyeur: The Windows of Toulouse-Lautrec is billed as a “pandemic-friendly theatrical experience.”

Inspired by Bated Breath Theatre Company’s pre-COVID immersive hit Unmaking Toulouse-Lautrec, this adaptation combines acting, dance, live music, puppetry and shadow puppetry with a walking tour of 19th century Paris, played by 21st century Greenwich Village.

Walking from The Duplex on Christopher Street to Judson Church on Washington Square Park, each small, socially-distanced audience catches a glimpse of the artist’s life in not-quite-chronological order.
