Latest News from NYTE

I mentioned yesterday that I've been busy prepping for the fall season...but that's not all that's been going on here at The New York Theatre Experience!

Last month, we learned that NYTE will be the recipient of the Stewardship Award from the New York Innovative Theatre Awards. The presentation will be at NYIT's annual awards ceremony, on Monday, September 22. This is a very significant honor and we are very proud to receive it. The full announcement is on Leonard Jacobs's blog (he's chair of the honorary awards committee).

Last month, we also began work on Plays and Playwrights 2009, which will be the 10th volume of our annual anthology series of new plays by emerging/heretofore unpublished playwrights from NYC indie theater. We are completing our initial discussions with the ten playwrights we hope to include in the book--expect an annoucement of the contents later this month. Meanwhile, just know that it's going to be a terrific book, if I may say so myself; one that will expand even more than usual the parameters of publishable drama. I'm very excited about it. The target publication date is February 1, 2009.

Finally--the nytheatre i has, at long last, its very own web address. Please update your bookmarks and blogrolls! Find us at http://www.nytheatre-i.com. (Note that the old blogspot address will continue to work.)
