    I was idiotic to do not one but TWO shows at that theater. Run. RUN!! The quality is so bad we literally had audience members giggling at how awful it was. Many just stood up and left. You get FOUR 3-hour rehearsals total for shows that last 90-120mins, the directors are beyond ignorant and oblivious to anything related to good direction, tons of time is wasted, and every time I told anyone in the know that I was in a show there they practically choked. If you want to be a part of something that's lower quality than the cheesiest elementary school play then this is it. The theater only survives because young actors invite their entire families to their "first New York gig" and the theater makes all that money without paying the actors a dime. I've been part of some bad shit, but this is the worst.

    I also made the mistake of doing a show with them when I first got back in the biz after having a baby.
    They pick crappy shows with big casts and then double cast. So 2 casts worth of friends and family come to see the shows and I guess that’s how they continue to make money.
    I was beyond embarrassed to perform there and don’t include the credit on my resume.

    I've done two shows with them and had mixed experiences. My first show there was great--we had a talented cast and a director who was very aware of the odds stacked against us (limited rehearsal time, no budget, etc) and found ways to get around that. The second show I did there was a much more frustrating experience. It seems like a lot hinges on the director.
