NEW WORKS EXPLORED BY COUNTING SQUARES THEATRE
Carpe Tunnel: Embracing the Struggle
In an effort to explore humanity, life and the struggle therein, Counting Squares Theatre presents a series of new works being examined for their 2008-2009 Season. From a new piece by Stephen Belber to a new adaptation of Buchner’s Woyzeck, the celebration of life is captured through the eyes and the minds of Counting Squares Theatre company members.
Stephen Belber, Emmy nominated for his work on The Laramie Project, lends us the scene that inspired the major motion picture Management. Currently in post-production, Management, written and directed by Mr. Belber, stars Jennifer Aniston, Woody Harrelson, and Steve Zahn.
Additionally we examine a segment from our 2008-2009 Season opener Woyzeck. This world premiere adaptation incorporates music, the ever-present theme of soldiers returning from war, and the struggle to reintegrate into society.
Counting Squares features eight additional new pieces written solely by company members. Weaving these pieces together, musician Nick Sprysenski lends his voice, “power and poetry.” Featuring songs from his album Caterwaul, Sprysenski has been called “one of the city’s most visceral songwriters”.
June 3-10 at 8pm. Nicu's Spoon Theatre (38 West 38th, between 5th & 6th)
For tickets: info@countingsquarestheatre.org or (407) 765-6308

OPENING NIGHT GALA
Counting Squares Theatre invites you to join us for an opening night gala celebrating a successful season. Immediately preceding the show will be a champagne toast accompanied by a very special announcement from our artistic team.

Following the toast we will feature music, dancing, and a bar. Featuring music by Brooklyn’s own Unicornicopia, join us on the rooftop for an unobstructed view of the Empire State Building. Displayed in the lobby will be an array of original paintings by artist and musician Nick Sprysenski available for purchase.

Tickets for opening night includes admission to the party. Entry is $5 for those who do not attend the performance, but wish to attend the party.
