Red Tape Theatre Moves to New Home with Artistic Partner Theatre Y
Red Tape Theatre announces their move to a new home, which will be shared with their artistic partner Theatre Y.
Located in the heart of Lincoln Square, the new 3,300 square foot venue at 4546 N Western is steps off of the Brown Line and houses a flexible black box performance area, with an audience capacity of up to 75 seats, a spacious lobby, and rehearsal spaces.
This move comes amidst a period of significant growth for the 14 year old company, including a forthcoming transition to our Free Theatre Movement in 2018. Having a permanent artistic home enables Red Tape to focus on expanding their award-winning, immersive programming with additional main-stage productions, staged readings, off-night and late night shows, and other events for the community at large.
This move also marks the start of an artistic partnership with Theatre Y. Opening in late October 2017, the two companies will co-produce the shared venue's inaugural production YERMA, by Frederico Garcia Lorca, directed by Red Tape's Artistic Director Max Truax and translated by Theatre Y's Hector Alvarez. YERMA will be followed by Red Tape's production of I SAW MYSELF, written by Howard Barker and directed by Jennifer Markowitz. The season will include a third show directed by Artistic Director Max Truax. The full season will be released later in August.
