WET PAINT New Play Festival To Premiere At The Tank

WET PAINT New Play Festival To Premiere At The Tank

Wet Paint: a new play festival will premiere next week at The Tank in mid-town Manhattan on Wednesday July 25 and Thursday July 26.

Wet Paint features 10 new short-plays by talented artists, many of whom have been tearing-up the Off-Broadway/Regional theatre scene for years. "With ink so fresh, it's being strengthened every moment until performance time. Imagine a gallery where painters are creating the work in front of you as it hangs on the wall. Watch our paint dry, and you'll likely be among the first to witness a masterpiece."
