Michael Bettencourt
Doing The Dramaturg
This is where I would say that the playwright has to learn how to accommodate the alchemy that is going on around him.  The fruit ripening in front of him is, and is not, his play

Arthur Meiselman/Danin Adler
Around Midnight with Manfredo Fest
Midnight was the time when I slid into a deliciously dark, smokey jazz club in Chicago and was bewitched by a blend of music I hadn't heard before

Nathan Thomas
What I'm Going To Do This Summer
In a nation in which there are claims of
Judeo-Christian influence, one fails to see an application of Christian belief in the justice system


Les Marcott
A List Of My Demands
British diva and frequent rehab resident Amy Winehouse demands a lot of alcohol backstage (surprise, surprise). Styrofoam is not allowed

Claudine Jones
How many times has an audition taken an unforeseen turn because of sheet music you failed to bring, or a last minute decision on appropriate clothing or somebody you see across the room

Come In, Stranger, Out Of The Fog
During the December 1962 "killer fog" that blanketed London for 5 days, a man, having lost his way, knocks on a door to seek assistance. He is admitted into the home of a widow whom he takes to be alone. His error! A sinister mystery builds around their mutually inappropriate, inexplicable and threatening behavior. And then... a man appears!

Rich Yurman

Days and Nights

Aladdin's Electric Lamp
An apparently light, comic fantasy with a strange, sinister undertone that uses a continuous flow of lyric dialogue, time-shifts, backflashes, comedic bits, music and dance.. It is the fable of what makes ROBERT run, what makes MADELINE rebound, and what makes SHE... she!

Madelin de Rumba
A rap-chatter ballad about a woman and her dummy

Two plays by
Arthur Meiselman
