Zero Untitled – NYC’s third production is complete!

3ht 3ht kte “Three Hour Theatre” is our annual play-writing festival that was staged in Brooklyn, NY this year, in collaboration with our new branch Zero Untitled – NYC and the host venue The Way Station. Production took place on Monday, September 25, 2017.

Program director is Anel Carmona, who previously directed “Unending Repetition” (Manhattan Repertory Theatre and Zero Untitled – NYC).

Like last year’s production, “Three Hour Theatre” will be all about playwrights writing short plays for one hour, then directors rehearse actors for an hour, and then the plays are all performed back-to-back-to-back!

Both new and established ZU-NYC actors were Kate Remelius (formerly of the Texas branch), newcomers Stephen Tan and Jacob Edwards. The director of the two plays was another newcomer Seth Roseman. The third play did not have a director and the allotted time ran out.

Performance of "A Devil's Haven"

Performance of “The Devil’s Haven”

The latest edition of Textual Overture has wrapped up an eclectic performance on Thursday, September 21 at Cafe 5 in Kingsville, TX.

Among the performances were new theatre pieces written by Julio Martinez and Michael Verderber.

Martinez’s called “The Devil’s Haven” was a sound-and-text based work that featured performances by Martinez, Josue Villarreal,  Tristan Wolfe, Angelina Rios, Kylie McIntosh, and Annette Otero Otero.

Verderber’s play, a silly golf comedy called “Dogleg” starred Amy Ziyad, Matthew Krug, and Vanessa Guerra with a cameo by Verderber.

The artwork (in form of print) of Mary Maliha was introduced by Katherine Orozco-Verderber. Poetry and open mic performances featured Allison Wonderland, Josue Villarreal, Robert Trujillo, Kylie McIntosh, and others.
