MOXIE’s Sweet Sixteen Season
Coming Back Safe, Strong and Sassier Than Ever
Turning sixteen means new responsibility and new freedom. It’s perfect timing for MOXIE’s Sweet Sixteen Season. We’ve carefully planned an unforgettable return to the theatre. Four hilarious, uplifting and thought-provoking opportunities to reach across the divide, to step outside ourselves, to pull those we love closer and to be humbled by the human capacity to give.
But these opportunities mean nothing if you aren’t safe in our seats. MOXIE’s Season has a calendar that can shift with regulations, tickets that are more flexible than ever and, if needed, safe-distance seating plans so you can feel confident returning to theatre. And we’re doing all this with the same audacity, sass and style you come to MOXIE for. After all, what good are the keys to the car if you can’t make out in the back seat?

I And You

Homebound due to illness, Caroline hasn’t been to school in months, but she is as quick and sardonic as Anthony is athletic, sensitive, and popular.

I and You is an ode to youth, life, love, and the strange beauty of human connectedness.
