The panel will define “indie theater,” the new designation for showcase and off-off-Broadway productions, and compare it to off-Broadway. Are the differences mainly economic, or are there significant esthetic distinctions? Does “indie” necessarily encompass fringe and festival production? When planning a production of a new work, what are the reasons for aiming at one medium versus another? What economic impact does “indie theater” have on New York’s economy? And how different is producing not-for-profit from producing commercially?
Doors open at 7:00pm for networking and refreshments, panel starts promptly at 7:30pm. FREE for TRU members; $12 for non-members. Please call at least a day in advance for reservations: 212/714-7628; or e-mail TRUnltd@aol.com. The panel will be co-moderated by Sherry Eaker, editor-at-large of Back Stage.
