The return of Persistence in Memory to the stage is at once a revival and a world premiere. Way back in 1987, Persistence in Memory, a probing drama about a man, a woman, a chair, a mirror and a noose, first debuted at the Deep Ellum Theatre Garage. But unlike other shows that fade away as the lights go black, this one has never stopped evolving. Nearly a quarter century later, the same actor re-approaches the role he first took on at age 24. While the events of his early life remain the same, he now recounts new experiences, confesses secrets and copes with love and loss. Old and new at the same time, Persistence in Memory will linger in your own thoughts for a long, long time. Learn More

About the Ticket Supplier: MBS Productions
MBS Productions specializes in "new theater." In essence, every play or musical they do is a world premier. They are the only theatrical production company in North Texas that specializes exclusively in producing previously unseen works for the stage. They deem their audience to be the most adventurous, sophisticated, and eager, for they know that they'll get to experience these new works.
MBS Productions was founded in 2004 by Mark-Brian Sonna when he produced the show, "Theatre of Death," which was presented at the Teatro Dallas space for the Halloween season. The show consisted of six short plays dating from the middle ages through the present day, all dealing with death. Two of the plays were world premiers, three were new translations, and one was an adaptation of an existing work. This set the tone for what was to come. In 2005, they did a second show of "Theatre of Death" to kick off a 3-show season that carried them through the summer of 2006. In their 2006/2007 season, they presented five plays. They currently produce six shows a year, as well as assist and serve as consultants to other theater companies in developing and producing new and existing plays for their audiences.
