1000 Playwright Interviews The first interview I posted was on June 3, 2009.  It was Jimmy Comtois.  I decided I would start interview...

The 2nd-Ever New York Theater Review 2008 Edition Fundraiser is tomorrow night, Monday, October 22.
The quick skinny:
Performance Space 122
Upstairs Stage (the larger one, not the one around the corner)
150 First Ave. at 9th St.
$25 door/$20 advance.
Advance sales are available thru the Fractured Atlas donation link on the NYTR home page -- www.nytr.org. Just print out whatever Fractured Atlas sends you as a donation acknowledgment and you're in. The donation process will also put you on a list we'll have if you donate up to about noon tomorrow, Monday. But our crack admissions crew will be accepting anything from Fractured Atlas that has your name, our name and $20 (or more) on it.
This is without question the most reasonably-priced fundraiser probably recent NYC memory if not EVER.
Look at what the admission price will get you:
Performances by:
  • Banana, Bag & Bodice's musical alter-egos, The Rising Fallen
  • The Amazing one-man musical-comedy performance unit that is Reggie Watts
  • Singer-songwriter Beth Collins
And that's just part of the entertainment. There will also be 6 brand spankin' new Tiny Plays created especially for the event by downtown theater groups
  • Direct Arts
  • Bluebox Productions
  • The New York Neo-Futurists
  • Flux Theatre
  • The Shalimar
  • Hoi Polloi
AND more auction and raffle items than I can list here and expect you to keep reading, but suffice to say there is some really good stuff going on the block, including a deluxe ticket package of Fall theater events from the likes of
  • Classic Stage
  • The Flea
  • The NY Neo-Futurists
  • Performance Space 122
  • The Public
  • 2nd Stage
PLUS appearances by playwrights Adam Szymkowicz, Anne Washburn, Tommy Smith & Alec Duffy and Seattle's own Marya Sea Kaminski .
Any help you can give us spreading the last-minute word is most appreciated. And if you're in NYC tomorrow night, I hope you'll come on down and say hi. It should be a truly great and memorable evening.
