Welcome to the Stage Rights STAGE WRITES Blog.
We’re going to post all sorts of things you’ll find fascinating and useful.
Sometimes we’ll have staff members posting thoughts and ideas and other theater-related items, and other times we’ll have some of our playwrights writing about what’s on their minds. Someone might have a rant about something or other, or maybe just a wonderful huzzah or two – everything is welcome at Stage Writes.
For this first “From the Desk of…” post, let me toot our own Stage Rights horn. We’re always on the lookout for great new pieces of theater to bring to you, and I think we have a great catalog of plays and musicals for your theater to produce. Browse through them – I’m pretty sure you’ll find something your audiences will enjoy.
This year we’re also publishing two anthologies. First up is the Best Of The Red Bull Theater Short Play Festival – a collection of short plays with classic themes and heightened language from some of America’s hottest playwrights (available June, 2016 in bookstores and online). Next will be the Wicked Lit Collection, a delightfully evil collection of short plays taken from horror literature, created as site-specific theater by the folks at Unbound Productions in Los Angeles. Plays from both of these collections will also be available for licensing – stay tuned for more information.
We’ve just released an uproarious new musical by Molly Bell called The Real Housewives Of Your City: The Musical. Theaters will be able to localize this delicious romp to their own community. It’s witty and saucy – check it out. Also look for the upcoming premiere of my own Wonderettes: Dream On, the new sequel receiving its world premiere at Stages Rep in Houston this summer.
Come back to STAGE WRITES often, and I hope to see you at the theater!
