Williams' Women Walk into a Room...

Seven of Tennessee Williams' most iconic women - Laura Wingfield, Stella Kowalksi, Mae Pollitt, Big Mama, not to mention Amanda Wingfield, Blanche Du Bois, and Maggie Pollitt are trapped in a room together. Ironically, these amazing women are all waiting for their brothers, husbands, and sons to come home.

Do we need to say more?

This raucous comedy explores what it's like to be the hero - or heroine - of your own story as well as delves into a deeper meaning of what it really means to be a woman. And considering our current presidential environment, this is a message more timely than ever.

Women of Williams County had an official staged reading as part of the 2015 Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival.

Starting with their Autumn Arts, the Midtown International Theatre Festival will also serve as a place for artists emerging from colleges and special programs to enter into the professional world with abundant support from an experienced artistic and academic advisory. Now, established professionals and the next generation can join in.

While the skyline currently glitters with theatre festivals, there was a time when the Midtown International Theatre Festival was one of only two! John Chatterton has set the gold standard for presenting new and exciting independent theatrical works in New York.
