59E59 Theaters Announces Summer Season
The East to Edinburgh and Summer Shorts festivals return to the off-Broadway theater.
59E59 Theaters has announced the productions set for its 2016 summer lineup.
The season opens with East to Edinburgh, the festival that features shows on their way to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
Richard Strand's Butler, directed by Joseph Discher, then makes its New York City premiere in July, followed by the short play festival Summer Shorts, now in its 10th year. The festival will include works by Neil LaBute, Idris Goodwin, Cusi Cram, A. Rey Pamatmat, and Oscar winner Alexander Dinelaris (Birdman, On Your Feet!).
Maestro will follow in September, starring, conceived, and written by Hershey Felder, with direction by Joel Zwick. The U.S. premieres of the puppet play Bears in Space and Conor McPherson's adaptation of Daphne du Maurier's The Birds round out the season.
