The Modern Stage is a theatrical production company founded by playwright/producer/director Tom Sime in 2007. Originally located in Dallas, where it co-produced Tom's plays All of the Above (with Risk Theater Initiative) and Bloodletters (with producers Joe and Sandra Black), Modern Stage (and Tom) moved to New York in 2008, and soon co-produced (with the Blacks) his comedy My Favorite Animal at the 45th Street Theatre. Tom was named Writer in Residence at the Theatres at 45 Bleecker in early 2009, and actor/producer/director Adam Smith joined the company as Producing Partner that same year. Tom and Adam's recent NYC projects include a new workshop of Bloodletters (directed by Adam and co-produced by the Blacks) and a reading series, "Oh. Nine," that starred Everett Quinton in All of the Above and Deborah Harry in Nancy and Nicole. The latest Modern Stage production is Tom's new play Miracle Day, which he is directing as well as co-producing with Adam, who plays the leading role. The production opens at Theatres at 45 Bleecker in May 2010.
