On Veteran’s Day (Remembrance Day) I Thank the Players and John Kuntz

This is Club Theatre Holiday…
On Veteran’s Day (Remembrance Day) I Thank the Players and John Kuntz

We’re approaching the season when we reflect and give thanks. Today we give thanks to veterans, in two weeks we count our blessings again with family and friends. While I’m putting the finishing touches on my new play about a returning vet, which will premiere in The Club Theatre new works series in January 2010 along with Bette Greene’s resurrected piece about her “German Soldier”. And many more great events for the season. I’d like to thank some veterans of the local stage and close friends and “family” as well. I’d like to thank Keith Littles and Tom Graves for lending their great talent to this project to breath life into new work. This past season we’ve had great new work introduced to the Boston Arts and theatre community. I’d like to thank Beth Kuster for bringing her work to be presented, and congratulate her on her production in New York of “The Last Superhero”, thank you to Barbara Matteau for her new plays, and we look forward to adding her work into our Repertory, and all the other plays and players this past season of 2009 who gather in an upstairs space at the edge of the fabled Boston Theatre District in a transformed Film vault in the Bay Village. They congregate because they are dedicated to presenting new theatrical work in Boston, they have not received much more than some good meals and wine from erbaluce. We’ll continue on Mondays and Tuesdays until there are no more works to present, infinity…

…Meanwhile, please support local Boston theatre, especially new works. Please see “Salt Girl” by John Kuntz at the Boston Playwright’s Theater until November 22. John Kuntz is an innovator who exemplifies what great new work is. I have made many mistakes in the past in a production capacity, and the one I regret most is not being able to raise the cash he required for us to produce his work in a little theatre cafe in Allston a decade ago. John Kuntz is now a veteran of the Boston stage, and his work deserves the support of all theatre goers. Thank You, John Kuntz. And thank you to all who support new plays.

Please feel free to Blog here with any news on new work or experiences you have in presenting new works.
