Three Days To See - A Stage Manager's Notes
As a BUC tour guide, it will come as no surprise when I say that I love history. Theatre history, NYC history, history in general! Whenever I’m working on a production, I love to know about the history surrounding the theatre I’m in and the show I’m on.
The theatre I’m in:
New York Theatre Workshop (79 E. 4th Street between the Bowery and 2nd Ave)
In my opinion, this is one of the greatest theaters in New York City! NYTW has a mission to develop “inventive new works” and foster emerging playwrights and directors – so this theater has seen an amazing breadth of art pass through it's doors! In recent years, shows like Once and Peter And The Starcatcher have started here before moving to Broadway, but more special to me is the fact that Rent was born here! Little-known fact: The back wall of the stage, which looks like a brick wall, is fake! It was built for Rent and has held up ever since! What a privilege it is to make art on a stage that has hosted Sybille Pearson, Anne Bogart, Athol Fugard, Tony Kushner…the list is staggering!
The show I’m on:
Three Days To See (a Transport Group production)
