The good folks at Indie Theatre Now are helping us celebrate our 15th Anniversary Season by publishing a collection of plays which premiered with Boomerang. Each of these plays was a part of our Rep Seasons, and many were workshopped thru the FIRST FLIGHT New Play Festival. We are extremely excited to have these plays available on Indie Theater Now. If you saw them onstage, you now have a chance to buy them and relive those thrilling experiences. And if you missed them the first time, here’s a chance to read these exciting works you’ve heard so much about. (One of them you can see performed right now!) Either way, these plays and the productions of them on Boomerang’s stages shaped the company we are today, and we are forever grateful.
The Plays are:
Aubergine Days by Roy C. Berkowitz (produced in September 2001 at the Flatiron Playhouse on 23rd Street, directed by Rachel Wood)
The Monster Tales by Mary Jett Parsley (produced in September 2002 at The Actors Theatre on 31st and 8th Avenue, directed by Amy Henault)
Giant-n-Variation by Francis Kuzler (produced at CenterStageNY in September 2005, directed by Eric Amburg)
Love in the Insecurity Zone by Mike Folie (produced at CenterStageNY in September 2006, directed by Rachel Wood)
Lickspittles, Buttonholers and Damned Pernicious Go-Betweens by Johnna Adams (our current hit, running at TheaterLab thru October 6th, directed by John Hurley)
You can find all of these plays available on Indie Theater Now.
Later this week, I’m contributing an introduction to this collection, talking about why we chose to produce them, memories of working on them, and how they fit in the context of our company.
