by David Sepulveda | Sep 18, 2014 1:14 pm

DAVID SEPULVEDA PHOTO Czech-born British playwright Tom Stoppard once described theater production as a “team sport.” With a new play under production, New Haven playwright and theater director Sharece M. Sellem has broadened her theatrical team, inviting audience members to a series of staged readings to help shape the direction of Brothers Relived, a working title that could change—again.

Tom Stoppard, Rock Star

by Chris Arnott | Sep 9, 2014 4:35 pm | Comments (2)

Phil Rosenthal Photo “He’s a rock star,” noted Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Donald Margulies was overheard saying as he and hundreds of other Tom Stoppard fans searched for seats in the packed Yale University Theater auditorium on Monday afternoon. The line to get in to see Stoppard deliver a lecture extended halfway down the block outside the theater. The theater seats 620; dozens, if not hundreds, were turned away.

Stuck In The Middle

by Lucy Gellman | Aug 7, 2014 12:05 pm

Christopher Ash Photo Two windowpanes, clouded by years of dust and rain buildup. A spare, glistening park bench empty in the center of a manicured patch of grass, backed with a homely looking fence that could appear anywhere from Elm Street to Grand Avenue.

Lights, Cameras ... Camp!

by Allan Appel | Aug 1, 2014 1:28 am

Allan Appel Photo Jamie Donovan plays six different bass pans at the same time. He stands in the middle of six drums and maneuvers around to get the 12 notes his instrument is capable of. He’s so proficient at it his teacher often calls on him to set an example of the rhythm.

Endurance is in its final weekend at Long Wharf Stage II. It might seem an unusual show to mount during a summer season—unless you’re in New Haven, where it fits in beautifully with the creative abandon and intellectual rigor of the theater offerings at the International Festival of Arts & Ideas.
