ZSTP, L.E.S. Arts Festival and COTE

1:37 PM / Posted by Ashley /

I have several exciting events coming up which are listed below including performing with ZehlSteen Think Pound at the UCB theatre tonight, directing a solo performance at Theatre for the New City, which is part of the Lower East Side's Art Festival on Saturday, May 24th, 2008 and Co-Op Theatre East's Summer Reading Series, beginning in June. I definitely hope to see you at some of the performances!

My sketch comedy group, ZehlSteen Think Pound's Upright Citizen's Brigade show is today... Monday, May 19th at 6:30. This is a very important show, as we're competing for a regular spot at the UCB. The location of the show is:

Upright Citizen's Brigade Theatre306 W 26th St between 8th and 9th Aves.

Renowned sketch comedy group Murderfist will also be performing. Only $5 for two very nice groups.

I am directing performance artist Katherine Adamenko (http://www.ladypants.com/) in a short piece from a new play called "Halma and Raina" by Issak Esmail Issak . The play was produced in Iran last year (an incredible story) and has had productions in other countries outside of the US (Norway and Canada). We're hoping to get it picked up in NYC. Please feel free to stop by and check it out.
We go up at 10:00 pm ... the details and location is below...

Co-Op Theatre East News...

Beginning June 2, we're going to be reading plays on Monday nights @ 7 p.m. in Washington Square Park. Not "performing" for the public, per se, but getting folks together, maybe throwing a frisbee around a bit, reading together, then maybe grabbing a beer afterward. We're going to start with The Trojan Women on June 2; on June 9, we'll be reading Waiting for Lefty. Come join us! We're hosting a festival of new short works!!! We are currently accepting unpublished, un-produced plays, up to 15 minutes in length with small casts (that fit the mission statement!); 4 or 5 will be produced in September.

If you'd like to submit, send your work to cooptheatreeast@gmail.com .
