Click "Like" to help us congratulate Teatro Vista resident playwright, Martin Zimmerman! Martin Zimmerman’s White Tie Ball has been recommended for consideration for the American Theatre Critics Association’s annual ATCA/Steinberg New Play Award, honoring new scripts produced outside New York City in calendar year 2013. Congratulations to the playwright and everyone involved in the production. With only about three dozen scripts or so recommended in most years, out of hundreds of new plays seen by ATCA critics across the country, being in this group is certainly an honor. Past Steinberg citations have been awarded to August Wilson, Moises Kaufman, Adam Rapp, Nilo Cruz, Lynn Nottage and Horton Foote. Six ATCA/Steinberg New Play finalists will be chosen in late January, and three ATCA/Steinberg New Play winners will be announced in a stage ceremony during the visitors' weekend of the Humana Festival in Louisville, Ky.

I Had the distinct pleasure of meeting Pulitzer Prize winning playwright Lynn Nottage last night. There is a local production of her play Ruined here in town presented by the Greater Reading Alliance of Community Theatres and Alvernia University. What a profound and uplifting play. She so beautifully gives voice to women that are suffering an unfathomable horror that is occurring in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (the rape capital of the world). And yet drills down to the core of these women's ability to triumph in spite of the horrid conditions they are subjected to. And it is so beautifully nuanced. Thank you Ms. Nottage for a wonderful Theatre experience. Looking forward to working with you in the near term.

Theatre folks: I need play suggestions so I can pull scenes for showcase. GO! (I'm already looking into Katori Hall, and Lynn Nottage plays)
I recently realized that I've been lucky enough to work with or meet three, count em', three Pulitzer Prize-winning playwrights. First I stage managed a staged reading of Lynn Nottage's "Fabulation" and she was gracious enough to participate in a Q&A. Then I was directed by David Lindsay-Abaire in his hysterical play, "Fuddy Meers." He may be the funniest person I have ever met. And lastly, John Patrick Shanley came to see me in "Doubt." He compared me most favorably to Ms. Streep! Needless to say, I was putty in his hands. If I were a cleverer person, I could share photos with you. Alas, I'm not that clever.

Kudos once more to playwright Danai Gurira for her continuing great work bringing the characters, history & culture of Africa to the American stage. Her work on In the Continuum, Eclipsed and The Convert are nothing short of intelligent, provocative, entertaining, emotional, raw, honest and educational. No offense to Lynn Nottage and her play Ruined which also covered a very worthy topic, but Danai's work cuts much more deeply and mines far more levels to broaden and open our minds. On that note, don't miss The Convert featuring Dawn Ursula and directed by Michael John Garces at Woolly before Sunday's closing.
YOUR CELLPHONE IS LINKED TO VIOLENCE IN DRCongo Birmingham, Ala. (WIAT) most of us can't imagine living without our cellphones. They are a link to the world around us. But if we look more closely, we find that what's so often in our hands also link us to the rape and torture of women in congo. A metallic are with heat-resistant properties called coltan is found mainly in eastern regions DRCongo. The metal helps to keep electronics from overheating. Fights over mining rights in congo are tearing villages apart, causing widespread violence against women. Members of various militias are using rape as a weapon of war. In that sense, the violence against women in congo is as close to use as our cellphone... Most of the fighting between the government and the various militias are really over control of the land; Co-director Jonathan Fuller say.

If you are in NY beginning on 2/21, definitely take the time to come see Fordham Theatre's Production of "Ruined." This Pulitzer-winning play, by Lynn Nottage, is an intense compelling look at women and their survival during war-time in the Congo. Part "Mother Courage," part "Waiting for Godot," you won't be able to look away. NYT's Ben Brantley wrote, "The never less than creating a complete and hauntingly contradictory world onstage." And Ms. Nottage summed up her play this way: "[Ruined] is not about victims, but survivors."

Wednesday, November 28–Friday, December 2 Ruined 28 November – 1 December @ 8pm, 2 December @ 2pm Theresa Lang Theatre PLEASE NOTE: PERFORMANCE DATES HAVE CHANGED! MMC Theatre Production Workshop presents Ruined by Lynn Nottage, which received the 2009 Pulitzer Prize, the Obie Award, and New York Drama Critics Circle Award. Ruined dramatizes the lives of young women working in a rain forest bar and brothel run by the enterprising Mama Nadi, who offers protection from the military forces in the war ravaged Democratic Republic of Congo, and who also profits from the lives of these young women. The play depicts the women’s bodies as the battlefield for both sides, and it offers a view for hope in the most inhumane of circumstances. Ruined was developed by Nottage from interviews with Congolese women who had been through the experiences put onstage in this powerful work. Ruined is performed by students in the Theatre Arts programs of the College with direction by David Mold, scenic design by Ray Rech .. ...

In the spring of 2012, in celebration of its 50th anniversary, CENTERSTAGE asked 50 of the country's leading playwrights to answer a simple question: What is my America?
