The First Rule of Write Club Is...

Sometime MadShag collaborator Jeffrey James Keyes (who performed in our production of Edward II, and whose play Orange Alert we developed in our reading series in December '05) is part of the playwright's collective Write Club NYC, and they are throwing a mixer for any and all artists who work in New York theatre...especially those of us at the fringes in Off-Off-Broadway. We'll be there, and you should be too! It's a chance to exchange ideas and information, to network, and to socialize with fellow off-off-Broadway artists.

Write Club NYC Mixer
When: Monday, January 29, 2007 @ 8PM
Where: Upstairs at The Irish Rogue, 356 W 44th Street
Admission is free! So come drink your face off.

Elsewhere: Going To St. Ives

Baltimoreans, be sure to catch Going To St. Ives, directed by MadShag guru Juanita Rockwell. It got great reviews, and is running through February 25th at Everyman Theatre. Juanita seems very happy with the production, and the actresses are reputed to be marvelous. If you go, let us know your thoughts in the comments!

Going, Going, GONE

The premiere of Charles L. Mee's latest play, GONE, begins February 1st at 59E59 Theatres, under the direction of MadShag buddy Kenn Watt and co-produced by Kenn's company The Fifth Floor. Mee is one of the most interesting playwrights of our era, and this piece, featuring Proust, Ginsberg, obituaries and made-for-TV movies, promises to be truly exceptional. They've put up a You Tube trailer for the play (so cool!); watch it and grab tickets at TicketCentral.
