Interviews with NYC's Indie Theatre Directors
Circling Back is a night of celebration of CIRCLE REP COMPANY, both for their achievements and for the inspiration they’ve provided today’s aspiring theatre artists. Circle Rep was an ensemble theatre company founded in 1969 by Marshall M. Mason, Lanford Wilson, Tanya Berezin and Rob Thirkield. Their focus was on ensemble work, and creating new American playwrights: something many theatre companies are doing now, but they started doing it in 1969. By the time they closed Circle Rep to move on to other projects in 1996, many of the company were household names, such as Lanford Wilson, A.R. Gurney, Jeff Daniels, William M. Hoffman, Judd Hirsch, Craig Lucas, Marshall W. Mason, William Mastrosimone, Paula Vogel, William Hurt, Kathy Bates, Brad Dourif, Cynthia Nixon, Albert Innaurato, Jonathan Hogan, Trish Hawkins, Tennessee Williams, Judith Ivey, Cherry Jones, Lou Liberatore, Danton Stone, John Lee Beatty, Brian Tarantina and Richard Thomas.
On September 30th, we will spend an evening laughing, talking, performing, reminiscing and creating new relationships – and we hope you’ll join us! We’ll be at The Theater Center at 210 W. 50th Street (basically 50th and Broadway) in the Anne Bernstein Theater (where Perfect Crime plays), at 7pm. You can get tickets here: Circling Back Tickets
