NEW YORK CITY: New Light Theater Project (NLTP) has announced its 2019-20 season, featuring two world premieres.
The lineup will begin with Deb Margolin’s Imagining Madoff (Oct. 17-Nov 9), a return engagement of the troupe’s production that ran in the spring. The play depicts imagined encounters between Bernie Madoff and the victims of his Ponzi scheme. Jerry Heymann will direct.
Playing next will be the rolling world premiere of Everything Is Super Great (Nov. 22- Dec. 14) by Stephen Brown. The piece, which follows a boy dealing with the loss of his brother, will be helmed by Sarah Norris.
Ending the season will be the world premiere of this year’s winner of the New Light New Voices Award, the organization’s annual literary prize: Andrew Rincón’s I Wanna Fuck Like Romeo and Juliet (Spring 2020), directed by Jesse Jou. Moving from outer space to Hackensack, N.J., the play chronicles a queer romance backed by Cupid and St. Valentine.
NLTP, founded in 2013, is an ensemble-driven theatre company that produces new and classical works while striving to support emerging and independent artists.
