We had an incredible 2013 season last year. We started with our Unclear Family repertory, which featured possibly telepathic babies, illicit, water bottle cocktails, and a swing set of epic proportions. We then rocked sold out houses in Cabaret XXXY: Who Do You Think You Are? at the 2013 Capital Fringe Festival — our biggest, craziest cabaret yet (remember the medley? Watch this space for a reminder) Finally, we helped break in the Anacostia Playhouse with more sold-out crowds for David Henry Hwang’s Bondage and The Parlour interactive experience. We also raised over $6,000 with your help on our last Kickstarter campaign. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
The problem with success (which is one we very much enjoy having)? How do we top last season? By planning another bang up season that will surpass everything else we’ve ever done. Here is a hint at what is coming up — without giving away what will be an official announcement at the end of the spring.
Our upcoming season includes:
- a new Cabaret for Fringe 2014. Working title: Break on Through. We got our official acceptance, so it’s happening folks! We’re getting the band back together and will be working with another, awesome Stephen Spotswood script. New to the game, we have PS Associate Jessica Aimone, who directed Killing Women, directing. Are you a dude? Want to audition? Visit our auditions page!
- We have plans cooking for a site-specific play in September/October 2014. Oh, boy are we excited about this one. We can’t wait to tell you more. But we have to, so you’ll just have to be patient.
- Continuing development of Stephen Spotswood’s play, The Last Burlesque (which we debuted at the Kennedy Center Page to Stage Festival in 2013)
- We’ll be producing a world première play by a female playwright for the Women’s Voices Theater Festival, a city wide event to be held in October 2015.
If that isn’t enough to get you revved up, well, we will still have more to come! Watch this space, breathlessly, and we’ll give you more when we are good & ready.
