Genre: Drama
Written and directed by Paul Zimet

NEW ISLANDS ARCHIPELAGO is at once a real-estate scheme, a tropical dream of new beginnings, and the accidental destination of the passengers and crew of the cruise ship, S.S. Azure. The action takes place on the ship’s deck, within the various rooms of the ship, in the sea, and within the characters dreams, (which are rendered on video.) Each person who has embarked on the cruise longs for a change and, as the voyage progresses, the passengers begin to enter one another’s dreams. Thrown together with strangers in increasingly unfamiliar surroundings, they find their lives propelled forward and unfolding in ways they hadn’t imagined.

NEW ISLANDS ARCHIPELAGO stars downtown performance luminaries Todd D’Amour, James Himmelsbach, Kristine Lee, Bianca Leigh, Ellen Maddow, Steven Rattazzi, and Tina Shepard. The production team includes Paul Zimet (writer/director), Ellen Maddow (music), Nic Ularu (sets), Nan Zhang (lighting), Olivera Gajic (costumes), Hilary Easton (choreographer), Simon Tarr (video), Harry Mann (saxophone & keyboards, Beth Meyers (viola) and Julia Funk (stage manager).
