Crowded Outlet is a not-for-profit development and producing organization in its inaugural year, committed to harnessing the creative powers of a variety of artistic voices and theatrical visions. The organization is run and operated by Wes Grantom (Lone Star Spirits, Eager to Lose) and Chad Goodridge (Passing Strange). Their first production, Lone Star Spirits by Josh Tobiessen and directed by Wes Grantom, was a NYTimes Critics Pick. Earlier in the year Crowded Outlet developed new work by Jeff Talbott (The Submission), Zakiyyah Alexander (10 Things to do before I die, Grey's Anatomy), Matt Dellapina (Deacon of the Bronx), Cori Thomas (When January Feels Like Summer), Alejandro Rodriguez, Lauren Whitehead, and Polly Lee (The Americans). Throughout the year Crowded Outlet will continue to develop work by the rest of the artists in their Surge Series, including new work by Emily Walton (Women without Men, The Shags), Matt Citron, Meghan Brown (The Pliant Girls) and Nikko Benson in collaboration with Chad Goodridge.
