New York’s Second Stage Theater is on a roll.
Not that they weren’t on a roll before. But now they are REALLY, REALLY on a roll.
After acquiring the Helen Hayes Theatre in April of 2015, this upstart Off Broadway producer has moved stoutly onto the Great White Way. Even more impressive: the new Broadway space is dedicated to only contemporary playwrights. That’s right.
The company now has three (count ‘me) spaces around Manhattan. And from the looks of it, new productions are lining up in the queue like planes at EWR.
You can see the exciting lineup for next year here.
But one to call out right now is the rarely staged A PARALLELORAM by Bruce Norris.
And another is THE MAN FROM NEBRASKA by Chicago double threat Tracy Letts.
