On this episode we talk to playwright Mike Lew and director Moritz von Stuelpnagel about taking ‘tiny father’ from audio to audience and catch up with critic J. Wynn Rousuck about the Contemporary American Theater Festival.
Chautauqua Theater Company (Producing Artistic Director Jade King Carroll, General Manager Emily Glinick site) has joined The Drama League and longtime partner TheaterWorksUSA (Artistic Director Barbara Pasternack, Associate Artistic Director Jillian Carucci site) to offer the new program for emerging stage directors.
Good news, then, from a theatrical landscape lately festooned with co-productions. Though this “tiny father” has ended its Barrington Stage run, it will get a chance to go deeper when it moves to Chautauqua Theater Company in Chautauqua, N.Y., next week. Butts in seats, please.
In Mike Lew’s new play, “tiny father,” which is inspired by Lew’s own experience and premieres this month at Barrington Stage Company in Pittsfield, protagonist Daniel is caught by surprise when his baby daughter is born at 26 weeks.
Theater, by its very nature, is a collaborative event. The playwright, director, actors, technical crew, and, of course, the audience all come together to create a moment in time. When two theatrical companies join forces to put together a project, it can be the best of many worlds and create a wonderful synergy. Such is the case with the co-world premiere of “Tiny Father,” which began its run at the Barrington Stage Company this week in collaboration with Chautauqua Theater Company.
Chautauqua Theater Company and Barrington Stage Company have announced full casting for their co-world premiere production of tiny father, a new play by Mike Lew (Teenage Dick) and directed by Moritz von Stuelpnagel (Hand to God). The production will play from June 25 through July 22 at BSC’s St. Germain Stage at the Sydelle and Lee Blatt Performing Arts Center (36 Linden Street, Pittsfield, MA). Opening night is June 30, 2023.
