If you weren't a winning bidder at Beneath the Gavel, you can still take home a Daniel Zeigler painting. The actual stretched canvas paintings* used in the show are going under the gavel in a silent auction to benefit Bated Breath Theatre Company. Help support a non-profit theater and bid now on one or all of the works displayed in the catalog.

The auction will open Thursday, April 13th and close a week later on the 20th.

*The "paintings" in Beneath the Gavel are digitized prints on canvas.

Bated Breath Theatre Company


Bated Breath Theatre Company specializes in original works inspired by and in partnership with museum collections and exhibitions. The Connecticut-based physical theatre company devises and produces interactive experiences that combine museum culture with live performance. Through a combination of rigorous research and daring theatricality, Bated Breath is committed to exploring current and past cultural touchstones in a variety of traditional and non-traditional spaces.

Bated Breath was recently honored with an award by the Connecticut League of History Organizations for its production of Freedom: In 3 Acts, an exploration of the African-American spiritual in American History and in the struggle for civil rights.
 Other recent acclaimed productions include: Beneath the Gavel: the immersive art auction play at 59E59 Theaters Off-Broadway, The Un-Making of Toulouse-Lautrec, which explored the rise and fall of the legendary painter by transporting the audience to turn-of-the century Paris; and Wild Things: The Life and Work of Maurice Sendak about the making of the children’s classic, Where the Wild Things Are.
