Photo Flash: The Characters of Guerrilla Shakespeare's AND TO THE REPUBLIC on Magazine Covers!
by Louisa Brady - May 30, 2014

BWW Reviews: Humanity Exposed in Theatre Artists Studio's NEW SUMMER SHORTS
by Herbert Paine - Jun 14, 2014

Imagine a world without music or dance. Walk in the shoes of war veterans who cope in singular ways with their demons.

It's this thread of foibles, follies, fears, and fancies that weaves through the eight ten-minute plays currently featured in Theatre Artists Studio's 7th Annual New Summer Shorts Festival.
