Spotlight: New Perspectives Theatre Company

Great news for card-carrying liberals!

Living Liberally would like to welcome one of our newest Liberal Card partners, the New Perspectives Theatre Company. We loved New Perspectives from the start because of their commitment to helping under-served artists and audiences.

From their website:

New Perspectives Theatre Company (NPTC) is an award-winning company founded in 1991 as a multi-racial ensemble dedicated to using theatre as an agent for positive social change. Our mission is to 1) develop and present new plays and playwrights, particularly women and people of color, 2) present classic plays in a style that sheds new light on our lives and work, and 3) offer theatre and its benefits to under-served audiences—especially young people and communities in need—to build life skills and promote positive participation in our society.

New Perspectives Theatre Company will be staging Off the Page, a series of workshop productions of new plays from their Women’s Work Lab. The premiere play will be “Sad Mad Glad Bad” by Andrea Lepcio and directed by Melissa Maxwell. The play is described as “What would happen if Beckett wrote for The L Word?” Check out the synopsis:

Olexandra's marriage has just imploded and Jill's body is betraying her. Each woman is running from the very thing she must confront. In SAD MAD GLAD BAD these two strangers find themselves trapped on a stage with an audience in a wildly theatrical duet about the making of love, self and art.

Performances run July 27-30 at 7 pm at New Perspectives Theatre Company (456 West 37th St at 10th Avenue).

Tickets are $10, but if you’re a liberal card member you can get 2-for-1 tickets with the new promotion. Don’t miss out on the chance to pay $5 for new and exciting theatre. Be liberal not only in your vote, but also in the theatre and arts you participate in and see.
