We are thrilled to be producing this Madness with Ego Actus! They will be picking the theme, which will be announced the week before. So stay tuned for more!
Writers for this Madness include: Gina Femia Michael Hagins Julienne Hairston Bruce A! Kraemer Judith Leora Edmond Malin Bara Swain Richard Vetere
Ego Actus (Production Company) is Latin for "My Way." Joan Kane and Bruce A! Kraemer created an independent theatre in company in 2009 dedicated to doing art for art's sake. Each artist brings his or her own way of creating to our shows and we unify them into a collective "my way." Joan directs and Bruce designs, they both produce. Everything we have presented to date has been in Manhattan or Europe, plus one show in Philadelphia. Our off-Broadway shows have included Play Nice! at 59e59 theaters and I Know What Boys Want at Theatre Row. We presented both Safe and what do you mean in Planet Connections, the East to Edinburgh Festival and the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. We have done 21 festival shows in ten different festivals including the Prague Fringe, the United Solo Festival and the FringeArts. Our shows have been nominated for 61 awards, of which we have won 21. We have also done 16 stand alone shows including Equity productions at Theatre Row, Theater for a New City, Urban Stages, and the WorkShop Theater. We are affiliated with the League of Independent Theater, A.R.T/NY, and Fractured Atlas.
New York Madness brings together a fierce lineup of artists to create an evening of new plays based on a theme announced one week ahead of the event. The collective works by all writers form a kaleidoscope of this cultural moment focused on the theme, which is announced just one week before the show. The plays are presented hot off the press, fully staged, script in hand and... ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN IN A MADNESS!
