An accountant in D.C. falls in love with theater in New York. After suddenly losing his father, he impulsively creates nytheatre.com. He gives up his comfortable life, spending thousands of nights in the audience and even more days at his computer bringing attention to notable, but often under-recognized artists. Working with his mother over two decades, he writes and edits thousands of reviews, publishes hundreds of plays, and posts scores of blog pieces, interviews, and podcasts. In doing so, he revolutionizes how the arts are covered and helps to usher in the indie theater movement. When the city fundamentally changes with soaring rents and shuttering spaces, plus the disruption of social media coverage, the sustained intensity of his schedule takes its toll. If you created or saw NYC indie theater during the last 20 years, chances are you've been impacted by his work. Now see his untold story move from his desk chair and the aisle seat, to the stage.
The play will be directed by Aimee Todoroff (Brecht in the Park; Visionary Voices with American Bard Theatre Company) and the cast will feature Chris Harcum* (American Gun Show; Rabbit Island) as Martin Denton and Marisol Rosa-Shapiro (Babel with Convergences Theater Collective; The Last Coin with Spellbound Theater) as Rochelle Denton with Sound & Lighting Design by Matthew Fischer (Vanity Fair with The Pearl Theatre Company; Visionary Voices with American Bard Theatre Company) and Costume Design by Barbara Davidson (We Haven’t Told Anyone About This with Elephant Run District). *Actor appears courtesy of the Actors’ Equity Association
