Fall has arrived in New York City, as have the usual trappings of the season - cooler weather, changing leaves, all pumpkin everything, and, of course, fall theater! After a busy summer of development on The FTP Show, we here at Theater in Asylum are hard at work gearing up for our 2023 season. Between applying for grants, planning a full production of The FTP Show and getting ready for our annual fundraiser (watch this space!), we’re taking in all the exciting work our friends in the indie theater scene have created this season. Read on to learn more about what we’re up to, as well as some of the upcoming projects we’re most excited about!
Cold Readings Continue this Month!
This month, we’ll be hosting two exciting Cold Readings, both online and in person. If you’re not already familiar, Cold Readings is a play-reading series focusing not on development, but on reader engagement. Each night a facilitator introduces the play and its context, we read the play without rehearsal, and finally we discuss. We dive into plays without the pressure of performance and cherish the opportunity to learn about our artform. No theater training is required to read and the group is always growing.
