FALL 4 NY 2005: THEATER -- TSI / PLAYTIME
TSI/PlayTime is a great venue for new theater works. They encourage new playwrights, directors and actors. It's perfect if you want to see new theater talent and new works or if you want to write, develop, act in and present new plays yourself.
To become involved in TSI/PlayTime as an actor, director, or playwright, just see their website for instructions and then send them an e-mail.
Similarly, the site will direct you to their current schedule of performances.
They are a very busy theater. They usually have three or four short plays in a show, and they often have shows (in some cases two or even three the same day) on Wed, Fri, Sat and Sun.
They will put on plays that are related to a specific theme, and plays unrelated to any theme. Here are some of the special festivals for the Fall:
