Meet Stefanie Londino & Whiskey Pants: The Mayor of Williamsburg

Name: Stefanie Londino

What is your current project?  Whiskey Pants: The Mayor of Williamsburg

Where are you performing your show and why is it a good fit for your production?

The HERE Arts Center, beautiful, contemporary off-Broadway venues promote the concept that great art can be made anywhere, and invite audiences of the beaten path to discover gems like Whiskeypants that aren’t (yet) on the Broadway boards.

What’s next for you?

Our band, West Side Waltz’s NYC debut at Rockwood Music Hall. After being away for 9 months, I’m so excited to bring our sound back to the states. Also, spending the holiday season at home in New York! We were away on tour last year; very much looking to be home for Christmas.

What is the name of the last show you saw?

Indecent! (And while I confess it was on Broadway, it was the kind of innovative, truthful piece that is what’s best about live theater.)

Any advice for your peers?

Give your heart away every day. What are you saving it for?

My new provocative and timely new drama Village, My Home

In a chaotic business world, do we know the difference between astrophysics and Buddha? Can it all be solved with yoga? Featuring characters at various points of their lives, Village, My Home questions how we choose New York City and what are the comforts that draw us back home. We meet the Old Woman, a matriarch who loves to paint and remembers the horrors of greater storms. We get a glimpse of out-of-towners and travelers from other boroughs, willing to take the City. Just when you yearn for your fax machine, we meet a new school, techno-tribal Computer Geek who threatens to interrupt the very subways that connect us every day. With theatrical movement and state-of-the-art sound design, “Village, My Home” promises to warm the heart and calm the most unsettling times The Theater for the New City is a terrific theater which has been presenting plays since the 1970s. And the 8th Annual Dream Up Festival is an ultimate new work festival, dedicated to the joy of discovering new authors and edgy, innovative performances
I am the Event Coordinator for an organization called LIT, the League of Independent Theater. We are hosting programs for indie theater artists in September and October.

The Flea Theater Explores Objectophilia with INANIMATE : Opens 8/21

The Flea Theater Explores Objectophilia with
INANIMATE
Previews Begin August 21 at The Siggy

** First full production at new 20 Thomas Street performing arts complex **

The Flea Theater presents the world premiere of INANIMATE, written by Nick Robideau and directed by Flea Associate Artist Courtney Ulrich. INANIMATE marks The Flea’s first production in their new performing arts complex at 20 Thomas Street in Tribeca, just blocks below its original home; it inaugurates The Siggy, their downstairs theater named for Flea founder and continuing inspiration Sigourney Weaver. Previews for INANIMATE begin August 21 with opening night slated for August 30.

Erica, shy and more than a little socially awkward, is in love with Dee. The problem is that her family, her only and equally awkward new friend, and the nosy residents of their small town in Massachusetts don’t understand at all, because Dee… well, Dee is a letter in the Dairy Queen sign. This world premiere production is the first play of its kind to explore objectum sexuality, a love for inanimate objects. With heart and quirk, INANIMATE tackles feeling like an outsider, listening to your heart and finally finding your tribe.

INANIMATE features The Bats, the resident acting company at The Flea, including Lacy Allen, Maki Borden, Philip Feldman, Artem Kreimer, Tressa Preston, Michael Oloyede, Nancy Tatiana Quintana, with understudies Marcus Antonio Jones and Alexandra Slater. The creative team includes Yu-Hsuan Chen (Scenic Design), Sarah Lawrence (Costume Design), Becky Heisler (Lighting Design), Megan Culley (Sound Design) and Claire Edmonds (Assistant Director).

Nick Robideau is a Brooklyn-based playwright, originally from Massachusetts. Some of his plays include The Sampo (Title:Point), Prophet in Pink (FringeNYC), Robot Heaven (Pipeline Theatre Company), and Everything (HB Studio). Nick recently received his MFA in playwriting from Hunter College, where he studied under John Baker, Tina Howe, Sam Hunter, and Arthur Kopit.

Courtney Ulrich is a New York based director. Directing credits include, The Feast by Cory Finley (The Flea) and Time Out Critic’s Pick White Hot by Tommy Smith (The Flea), Sousepaw: A Baseball Story (Shelby Company, FringeNYC 2015 Award for Overall Excellence in Directing), The Mysteries (The Flea, Assoc. Director). She has directed and developed work at New Dramatists, Ensemble Studio Theater, Ma-Yi, Samuel French Festival (Finalist), Pipeline Theater, Shelby Company, The Tank, 24 Hour Plays, Old Vic New Voices. Courtney is a recipient of the 2015 SDC Observership Fellowship and is an Associate Artist at The Flea Theater.

The Bats are the resident acting company members of The Flea Theater. Each season, over a thousand actors audition for a place in this unique company. The Bats perform in extended runs of challenging classics, as well world premieres of new plays. They are the lifeblood of The Flea.

The Flea Theater, under new Artistic Director Niegel Smith and Producing Director Carol Ostrow, is one of New York’s leading Off-Off-Broadway companies. Winner of several Obie Awards, a Special Drama Desk Award for outstanding achievement and an Otto Award for political theater, The Flea has presented over 100 theatrical, musical and dance performances since its inception in 1996. Past productions include premieres by Steven Banks, Thomas Bradshaw, Erin Courtney, Bathsheba Doran, Will Eno, Karen Finley, Amy Freed, Sarah Gancher, Sean Graney, A.R. Gurney, Jennifer Haley, Hamish Linklater, Enrique Gutiérrez Ortiz Monasterio, Itamar Moses, Anne Nelson, Qui Nguyen, Adam Rapp, Jonathan Reynolds, Kate Robbins, Roger Rosenblatt, Elizabeth Swados, and Mac Wellman.  Successes include Drama Desk nominated She Kills Monsters, These Seven Sicknesses, Restoration Comedy, The Mysteries and ten World Premiere productions by A.R. Gurney, including the WSJ Best New Play of 2013, Family Furniture.

Meet Audrey Alford & A Real Boy

Name: Audrey Alford

What is your current project? A Real Boy by Stephen Kaplan

Where are you performing your show and why is it a good fit for your production?

59E59 is the perfect fit for this intimate piece. We have turned Theatre C into a Kindergarten classroom with the audience up close and personal in alley seating. Watching it from different angles really does change the way you understand a character, as well as the puppets.

What’s next for you?

I’m a member of the SDC Observership Class so hopefully I will be working under an established director very soon. Otherwise, I’ll continue to keep my eye out for projects that fit with my personal mission.

What is the name of the last show you saw?

Waitress

Any advice for your peers?

Create a space where everyone is able to fail. Some of the best moments come from someone in the room trying something zany.

Meet Katie Braden & A Real Boy

Name: Katie Braden

What is your current project? A Real Boy by Stephen Kaplan

Where are you performing your show and why is it a good fit for your production?

59E59 Street Theaters; this is an amazing fit for our show, because they present such innovative, thought-provoking work from all over the world! I’m thrilled that we’re included in this season!

What’s next for you?

I’m taking classes for a graduate degree, so I start my next course 3 days after closing!

What is the name of the last show you saw?

A Brimful of Asha, part of the Soulpepper festival at The Signaure Theatre

Any advice for your peers?

I’ve found that I’m a better actor when I have balance in my life of work, fun, and family. I think it’s important to find the right ratio on an individual level, so don’t feel like you have to fit into someone else’s timeline or expectations. There are lots of ways to be happy in the theatre, and it may not be the way you expect!
