Metropolitan Playhouse Interfaces With Its Neighbors

I recently recorded a podcast with Alex Roe, artistic director of Metropolitan Playhouse. One of the things we talked about at length is the way that Metropolitan interacts with its neighbors in the East Village and Alphabet City. Alex indicated that there are several defined annual programs that bring the theatre in contact with nearby people and institutions in the course of creating new work -- this is a great "Good News" concept that I suspect happens more than we realize throughout the indie theater community.

Listen to Alex on the podcast:

And share your own stories about how your company interacts with its neighbors on a future nytheatre i blog post -- write me with details.
