McCarter is so
much more than just a show. Which is why we created McCarter News—a backstage glance that is quick
enough to read before the curtain goes up.
Arts & Healing Takes
Last month, "Our Cancer Stories" at
McCarter, in collaboration with Crossroads4Hope, brought together a
powerful and moving collection of personal narratives that illuminated
the journey of individuals facing the challenges of cancer. This heartfelt
event showcased the resilience, hope, and strength of those affected by
cancer, offering a platform for sharing their stories, experiences, and
the support they found in their community. Through art, dialogue, and
shared experiences, this collaboration provided a space for connection
and inspiration, exemplifying how the arts can serve as a
transformative healing modality.
