Buy Tickets


Come see the official selections for Rachel Bloom’s Comedy Short Challenge. Filmmakers were challenged to use an opening line of dialogue provided by Crazy Ex-Girlfriend’s co-creator, writer, and star Rachel Bloom – “YOU CAN’T DO THAT” to create a comedy short between 1 to 5 minutes. The Best of Fest and Audience Favorite winners will be announced following the screening. A WICF award of $1,000.00 plus a one-on-one mentoring call with Rachel Bloom will be awarded to the Best of Fest. A WICF award of $250.00 will be awarded to the Audience Favorite.

Dear Brattle Friends,

You guys continue to humble and amaze us with your outpouring of support!

Thanks to you, we have now raised more than $35,000 from over 400 individual donors!

Thank you for helping to keep our staff paid and The Brattle alive during this scary time.

I hope that you are all feeling healthy.

As we remain closed, our preliminary goal is to raise four weeks of operating support, or $65,000, to ensure we can continue to pay all of our staff, and other overhead through April 7. As things develop, our timeline for being closed and fundraising goal may change, but our ultimate goal of re-opening The Brattle stays firm.

With your help, this goal will become a reality.

Stay healthy,

Ivy, Ned & The Brattle Theatre Team
