Theatre Now “Devastated” to Cancel CABARET at the Pocketbook Factory

Theatre Now New York is disappointed to announce that plans for the much anticipated production of Cabaret at the Pocketbook Factory in Hudson, NY must grind to a halt. After one of the primary funders of the show pulled out, it was concluded that financially preparations for the show could not continue. Artistic Director Thomas Morrissey states, "We are devastated that the production of Cabaret cannot continue as planned. The people of Hudson have been so welcoming to us and we hope that they will welcome us back in the future."

Despite this setback, Theatre Now New York will continue with its plans for the future without missing a beat. SOUND BITES, the company's fall workshop to be held in New York City of ten ten-minute musicals, is accepting submissions from composers now and plans for that festival are moving forward. "One of Theatre Now's main goals is fostering new work," says Associate Literary Manager Joshua McWhortor, "So we're extremely excited to move forward with SOUND BITES and give the next generation of composers a chance to stage and workshop their new musicals." For more information regarding SOUND BITES, visit the company's website at www.tnny.org.

Theatre Now New York is a professional theatre company whose history originates with two established companies - the Genesius Theatre Guild in New York City and ReVision Theatre in Asbury Park, NJ.
