Throughline Artists (J.J. Kandel, Executive Producer; John McCormack, Producing Artistic Director) present SUMMER SHORTS 2014, their eighth annual festival of new American short plays from established and emerging writers, at 59E59 Theaters (59 East 59th Street). Performances continue through Saturday August 30th only. BroadwayWorld brings you photos from the opening night celebration below!

Featured are six world premieres from some of the theater's finest established and emerging artists, including Roger Hedden (The Sky and the Limit, directed by Billy Hopkins), Albert Innaurato (Doubtless, directed by Jack Hofsiss), Eric Lane (Riverbed, directed by Matthew Rauch), Warren Leight (Sec. 310, Row D, Seats 5 and 6, directed by Fred Berner), Neil LaBute (The Mulberry Bush, directed by Maria Mileaf), and Daniel Reitz (Napoleon In Exile, directed by Paul Schnee).

Summer Shorts returns for another summer of new American one-acts featuring original plays by the country's top playwrights. Representing some of today's best writing, directing and acting talents, Summer Shorts celebrates theater, summer and the short form. The festival's two separate series offer a diverse range of voices, styles, and subject matter. Summer Shorts 2014 offers six world premiere one-act plays, presented as two separate evenings of three each. The two series will run in rotating repertory. The New York Times called Summer Shorts "shamelessly clever and deeply satisfying!"

Tickets are $25 each (59E59 Members $17.50). Tickets can be purchased at the Box Office (Monday 12-6pm, Tuesday - Thursday 12-7:30pm, Friday & Saturday 12-8:30pm, Sunday 12-7:30pm); by phone at 212-279-4200; or online at www.59e59.org. Regular service fees apply to phone and online purchases.
