Thanks to all of you that joined us last season; we had great fun and great crowds, as well as some very interesting post-performance discussions. Here are some highlights from last season and be sure to join us when we start up again on September 29th (and do reserve early, we are selling out most shows)...
The season began with a sneak preview of the American Premiere of "The Timekeepers" from the award-winning off-Broadway company, The Barrow Group.
Later that fall, The Classic Stage Company showed us the inspiring process of bringing Shakespeare from the page to the stage, with an open rehearsal of "The Merchant of Venice," with Ron Leibman as Shylock.
In March of 2007, we hosted one of New York City's most innovative new storytelling groups. "Liar" presented four master storytellers - James Braly, Mike Daisey, Peter Lubell, and Michaela Murphy - in an evening hosted by Andy Christie. We heard four outrageous stories and the audience was charged with determining which one was not true...interrogations, prizes, and champagne ensued.
The season closed in April with a reading of a new play by Kelly Stuart, "The Disappearing World," accompanied by documentary footage and live Turkish and Kurdish folk singing.
Check back with us soon for information about the 2007-2008 season and thanks so much for helping to make 2007 an award-winning year!
