Keeping Up to Date with Indie Theater Now

October 16, 2013

This week we launched version 2.0 of our NYTE email newsletter program. The mission of these emails is to provide a simple and (we hope!) non-intrusive way for the folks who use and read Indie Theater Now and nytheater now to stay on top of all the new content that we're adding to the sites.

So you can now go here and sign up for any or all of our three informational newsletters:

  • Indie Theater Now updates -- info about the newest plays that we've published, along with links to articles, podcasts, and other media about the plays and playwrights who are part of the indie community (comes out approximately every 2 weeks)
  • nytheater now updates -- links to articles from our popular "Playwrights on New Plays" and "Indie Artists on New Plays" series, along with other commentary and observations about new plays written by myself and others from the indie community (comes out approximately every 2 weeks)
  • Indie Theater Now special offers -- occasionally we will send out emails about a new play collection or similar item that's available on Indie Theater Now
In addition, you can also subscribe to this website directly by clicking on the link in the sidebar at the right (you'll need to scroll down a bit to get to it!)

Let us know how we can improve our newsletters. Our goal is to make sure everybody can find the content they're looking for on both Indie Theater Now and nytheater now, and we're always eager to receive your feedback!





Loco7's "Undefined Fraction" at La MaMa
I got to pay a visit to one of my all-time favorite indie theaters, La MaMa E.T.C., for a performance of Undefined Fraction, which is part of the company's 2015 Puppet Series. This blend of edgy puppetry, physical theater, and dance is an exemplar of the kind of meditative hybrid installation/happening/drama that has been a mainstay of this East Village institution for decades.
