Out and About, Early October
Flux is about to be slammed by rehearsals beginning for The Lesser Seductions of History, so now is the time for us to get in our shout-outs for all the other great shows happening in (holy smokes it's) October.
The Dark Heart Of Meteorology features the sound design of our own IT-Award winning Asa Wember, Martin Denton gave it a glowing review, and the plot sounds intriguing.
Mahida's Extra Key To Heaven continues it's run at Heather's Epic Theatre Ensemble after landing strong reviews from Leonard Jacobs and David Cote. Heather's got a sweet deal for friends of Flux - read about it here.
Our TLSOH lighting designer Lauren Parrish built the set and did lights (yipes) for the New York Neo-Futurists new joint at the Ontological, Laika Dog In Space. Fun to say, no doubt fun to see.
Phoenix Theatre Ensemble is doing a Tennessee Williams staged reading series, and the amazing Kelli Holsopple (remember how good she was in our Poetic Larceny?) is in Suddenly Last Summer, but only for 3 nights! Check it.
Electric Pear's production of Ashlin Halfnight's Artifacts of Consequence was great - now they're back with his latest play, Balaton. The only downside? No PL115 co-production, so no amazing Rebecca Lingafelter...
Rapidly replacing Law and Order as the thing all NYC theatre artists must inevitably do, Sticky is returning to the Bowery and Matthew Murumba is in it! 'Nuff said.
Hopefully we'll do one of these mid-October, but let me just also say congratulations to Nosedive and The Blood Brothers for being featured in the October issue of American Theatre magazine - one more reason to circle those dates on your calendar in advance (Cotton Wright! Ryan Andes! James Comtois! Mac Rogers! Pete Boisvert! All stars, people, all stars).
What did I miss? What else is going on worth seeing?
