Untitled Theater Company #61 is celebrating its twelfth year of producing theater in New York. Over that time, it has continued its mission of producing a modern Theater of the Absurd. One of its most noteworthy achievements was the critically acclaimed Off-Broadway production of Fairy Tales of the Absurd. This sprang from the 2001 Ionesco Festival, the first-ever complete festival of Eugene Ionesco's plays, including all 39 plays (one of them a world premiere), as will as films and seminars. The Company has also produced a world premiere by Richard Foreman, and work by Vaclav Havel, T. S. Eliot, and Tom Stoppard. The New York Times called Fairy Tales of the Absurd "almost unbearably funny," and The Village Voice praised the "dizzying ambition [that] animates every aspect of this sprawling Ionesco Festival, which generously provides New Yorkers in the grip of a dark time an opportunity to encounter an unfailingly inventive playwright's response to his own traumatic age."
