Goodman Theatre has announced a month-long, city-wide celebration honoring Pearl Cleage with partnerships across six Chicago theatre companies.
Its fresh contemporary takes on Shakespeare, the Greeks, and others have become a staple of NYC’s summer season, but the company has bigger plans.
New works by Samuel D. Hunter and by Jeanine Tesori and David Lindsay-Abaire were named best play and best musical of 2021-22.
An intimate theatre with a focus on new plays and local stories, its season ends with the return of local star Terry Burrell as ‘Lady Day.’
Each award comes with a $75,000 prize and a residency at California Institute of the Arts.
New England theatremakers Aaron Jafferis, Articine, Bess Welden, Sam Plattus, and creative team Gail Burton and Josie Bray have been awarded grants to support their work.
The year-long residency will provide her with the resources and space to develop her new play ‘The Kit: Made by Martha.’
The new 3-year program will support writers, directors, designers, choreographers, and other generative artists in the creation of new works with a connection to the D.C. area.
The theatre’s development and communications director will step into the job previously held by Amy Zimerman.
Playwrights Calley N. Anderson, Brysen Boyd, Devon Kidd, and Zakeia Tyson-Cross will participate in LTC’s 2022-23 Writing Residency Program, beginning in May.
