IGNITED STATES PRODUCTION COMPANY is dedicated to the production of new work that has a focus on the political, the social, and the emotional. Our goal is to bring artists of from all disciplines together, in order to tell smart stories that look at the world in new and interesting ways. We are interested in theater that tackles major issues, from politics to religion, from society at large to the inner workings of the human heart. We want our plays to be the spark of great conversation, and perhaps even greater change. Ignited States begins with a question.

Production History

Eli And Cheryl Jump  | Open: 08/14/09 Close: 08/30/09
IGNITED STATES in association with Crosstown Playwrights are pleased to announce their production of Daniel McCoy’s ELI AND CHERYL JUMP, directed by Nicole A. Watson. ELI AND CHERYL JUMP will be performed as part of The New York International Fringe Festival at Venue#9 The Players Loft (115 MacDougal St, 3rd Floor). Performances begin August 14th and continue through August 29th.

Press are cordially invited to all performances.

Accident-prone Eli is magically shielded from death. Maybe. Mythology, personal history and recent tragic events collide in a story spanning 15 years, and 1,000 miles. When Eli and Cheryl jump it's only the beginning of their journey.

The production stars Charles Linshaw* and Cassandra Vincent*.

The production features the design team behind To Barcelona! Lighting design by David Bengali, sound design by Martha Goode, and prop design by Blair Mielnik (NY IT Awards Nominee for Best Set Design--To Barcelona!). Nik Santiago is the production manager and Rebecca McBee is the stage manager.

IGNITED STATES PRODUCTION COMPANY is pleased to announce the New York premiere production of TO BARCELONA! Written by Michael Niederman, and directed by Elyzabeth Gorman. TO BARCELONA! Will play a limited engagement at The Workshop Theater, NY (312 West 36th Street, 4th Fl.). Performances begin Saturday, October 11 and continue through Sunday, October 26.

A mile from the front lines of the Spanish Civil War, three New Yorkers indulge in their final night of drunken revelry before they kill, and possibly die, for their ideals. By morning they will know just how much they are willing to sacrifice for their utopia. Set at the high water mark of American activism, To Barcelona! tells the story of idealistic young men, struggling to make their ideology conform with their own human needs.
The production features scenic design by Blair Mielnik, costume design by David Withrow, lighting design by David Bengali and sound design by Martha Goode. Stephanie Tucci is the Prop Master and Christie Love Santiago is the stage manager.
