My Play WTC VIEW Is Being Published

Earlier this year, WTC VIEW, my play about life in NYC after 9/11, had its off-Broadway premiere at 59E59 Theaters in midtown. We had an amazing run with many sold-out houses, some great reviews, a feature in the NY Times and, in the end, it turned out that we were the highest grossing show in that theatre since it opened in 2004!

Now, WTC VIEW is going to be officially published by Dramatists Play Service, or DPS. They are the leading publisher of new plays and musicals in the U.S. and they will also be handling licensing for the show for future amateur and professional productions.  This is great news because the main reason we wanted to get the play out again was to get it out to a wider audience.  Now, theatre companies across the country will have the chance to put on their own productions of the show. It will be available in a bound "actor's edition" by the end of the year....and I will post details when that happens. 

Also, in the online realm, WTC VIEW has just become available on a new and unique website called Indie Theatre Now. Described by founder Martin Denton as "Netflix for plays", this service allows users to download a number of plays for a set varies depending on how many plays you want. It's another great way to help get the show out into the world and, already, it has garnered some attention for a possible international production next year!  Kudos to Mr. Denton for spreading the word about the vibrant Indie Theatre community here in New York.
