Signature Theatre: The Next Four Years
The Signature Theater Company has announced the subjects of their next four seasons. It also appears as though the $20 ticket deal, sponsored by Time Warner will continue.
Charles Mee - I'm not the biggest Charles Mee fan, but the main reason I'm not excited by this choice is that there is NO shortage of productions of his plays - especially since Mr. Mee graciously makes his plays available on line.
(plus another production of Edward Albee's The Occupant)
The playwrights of the Negro Ensemble Company - This is an interesting choice, and a slight diversion from the one playwright each season mission - but perhaps the most famous play to come out of the NEC was A Soldier's Play which was just recently revived by Second Stage.
Suzan-Lori Parks - It will be exciting to see a few of Suzan Lori-Parks' pre-Pulitzer plays re-staged. I'd love to see Imperceptible Mutabilities in the Third Kingdom and a non-Richard Foreman version of Venus.
20th Anniversary Season - Tony Kushner - Please, please, please let a production of A Bright Room Called Day be a part of this season.
