In Falling Awake, The Downtown Village News, on the verge of closing, is a place Suzanne, Denise, Phoenix, and Jeremy all call home. But when Phoenix and Jeremy suddenly die, Suzanne and Denise must join forces to find the men in the after-life and save the newspaper. Their lives are turned inside out as the men start re-emerging through mystic channelers, boisterous blues divas, mysterious messages, and a myriad of other characters who all seem to be Jeremy and Phoenix, reborn. Can the love they seek in the afterlife save them in reality?

John Chatterton created the MITF in 2000, a midtown alternative to other theatre festivals, as a way to present the finest Off-Off Broadway talent in convenience, comfort, and safety. In 2003, the MITF moved its activities to their current location, the Theatre Building on W. 36th St., where it has been successfully ensconced since. The MITF’s artistic emphasis is on the script itself, and therefore the Festival focuses on minimal production values.
