Looking Forward to a New Season of Indie Theater

I've been busy these past few weeks getting ready for the 2008-09 theatre season--specifically, the fall season in New York's indie theaters. It looks like a promising few months ahead!

We're going to see new works from: Mac Wellman, The Talking Band, Radiohole, Saviana Stanescu, Pig Iron Theatre, John Clancy and Brian Parks, Rich Orloff, Oslo Elsewhere, Reid Farrington (of The Wooster Group), Thomas Bradshaw and Jose Zayas, International Theatre Lab, Mallory Catlett, Babel Theatre Project, Andrew Irons, Ralph Lee's Mettawee Theatre, Peter Mercurio, and a whole bunch of other artists.

We're going to see new takes on a variety of classic works, too: Woyzeck, A Midsummer Night's Dream, both parts of Henry IV in repertory, Caryl Churchill's A Number, Tennessee Williams's Small Craft Warnings, plus a unique pairing of Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew with Fletcher's The Tamer Tamed.

Plus there's the New York Clown Theatre Festival at the Brick in Williamsburg. And Trav S.D.'s vaudeville revue No Applause, Just Throw Money at Theater for the New City.

And that's just in the next four weeks.

Our indietheater.org website has been revamped and expanded to help everybody navigate the embarassment of riches that is indie theater in New York. Check it out. In particular, look at:
