- Fringe Madness
The NYC Fringe
Festival is deep underway, but it's not too late to check out some great
shows. We know that you are bound to have friends involved in at least
one of them!
- Art Responds
Lots of artists have been responding to the Trayvon Martin case in the creative way artists do. Check out TCG's blog salon about the topic, and consider submitting a post. See what The New Black Fest is up to. Or Willing Participant's slow-moving human sculpture in Times Square. How is your company reacting? How are you?
- LIT Fund's Community Resource Grant
those 5 cents per ticket sold that you gave to the LIT Fund? Well,
many of you probably applied for the inaugural LIT Fund Community
Resource Grant opportunity (that was due this past Friday), but we want
to make sure everyone is on the lookout over the next couple weeks for
your chance to VOTE on which project should be funded to best support
our Indie theatre community. Stay tuned at
details about these and other important activities affecting OOB and to
see how you can help and get involved, check out the Community Corner.
The Importance of Communication
Productions place a lot of emphasis on communication in regards to Marketing and PR, but what about internal communication?
It is important to maintain active contact
with everyone involved with the production as they can parlay that into
subtle marketing, ie: via Twitter/Facebook/Instagram. Let's say
something really funny happened at a rehearsal and a photo was taken, or
there is a talkback at an upcoming performance, make sure that everyone
in the company is fed the information (and you can always be specific
about how you want that information shared).
This is an information world, share it, and encourage others to share too!

entering its 10th season, is a great example of a group with a very
unique focus that has been able to find and sustain a niche audience in
the non-commercial theatre world of Off Off Broadway. Described by its
founder and Artistic Director, Dan Bianchi, as a "mom and pop" theatre
company, they survive on ticket sales alone and do not ask for
financial donations nor apply for grants. Dan writes the scripts and
does most of the behind-the-scenes work and he uses a loyal group of
actors and crew to present it on stage.
Over the years, between the theatre company and Dan Bianchi,
they have racked up a whopping 8 IT Awards nominations, as well as a
Drama Desk Award nomination and are even mentioned in this month's
American Theatre Magazine for their H.P. Lovecraft Festival. With Horse
Trade as their co-producer for several years, they have called the
Kraine and Under St. Marks home.
I caught up with Dan and asked him a few questions about this intrepid member of the indie theatre community...
