About this show

This year, inspired by the exciting wave of change afoot in American culture and politics, New York Theatre Experiment (NYTE) is embarking on an exploration of American theatre, voices, images, ideas, and themes. During this season-long endeavor, affectionately dubbed "The American Experiment," they explore and celebrate great voices from the past with readings of some of the most influential and powerful American plays, and work to nurture new voices in the American theatre through several exciting initiatives designed to generate, support and produce new works.

"The American Experiment" is comprised of three steps:1. Photographer Leah Reddy freshly restaged 16 Iconic American Photographs all over New York City in June 2008, including "The Kiss" in Times Square, "Marilyn Monroe from the Ballerina Series," and "Migrant Mother," among others. "The Great American Pie-Off," held at The Bowery Electric in July 2008, and judged by Top Chef Dave Martin, and high-profile chefs Jason Schreiber, Judiaann Woo, and Betty Yip. NYTE unveiled the recreated photographs at this innovative Bake Off, which received press attention from Time Out and Urban Daddy. Playwrights were also invited to this event to view the photographs and use them as inspiration to create new work.3. Culminating this November, New York Theatre Experiment will present "Capture the Flag: A Festival of New American Plays," a rotating series of the top 10 plays as selected by New York Theatre Experiment, inspired by the 16 restaged Iconic American Photographs. NYTE is bringing together playwrights, directors, and actors to participate in this exciting and unique collaboration.
