Tony nominee Simon McBurney’s The Encounter requires audience members put them on to completely immerse themselves in the sensory experience he has created previously at London’s Barbican Centre and now at Broadway’s Golden Threatre. In the one-man play, McBurney draws from Amazon Beaming, a book by Petru Popescu about National Geographic writer and photographer Loren McIntyre’s experience with tribes along the Amazon River. McBurney co-directs the production, which begins performances on September 20, alongside Kirsty Housley. Opening night is scheduled for September 29. Strange sounds, water tricks and a head shaman await audience members for a completely unique theatrical experience. Check out our hot shots of McBurney as he takes the stage, and be sure to catch The Encounter; the limited engagement is closing on Janaury 8, 2017. The Encounterlast_img
