The Bushwick Starr, in collaboration with Superhero Clubhouse, is proud to present BIG GREEN THEATER, a series of plays written by public school elementary students from Bushwick's PS75 and Ridgewood's PS239. Celebrating its ninth year, BIG GREEN THEATER (BGT) is an eco-playwriting program in which kids write short plays about local ecology, climate change, and environmental justice, then see their work produced professionally for public audiences. This year's students have crafted eco-plays that question and tackle some of the world's most pressing environmental issues: climate change, habitat loss, and the interconnectedness of ecosystems. The plays are performed by an ensemble of professional actors, directors, and designers using only green theater methods (recycled materials for sets and costumes, solar-powered LED lighting, paperless programming, etc). BGT is a beloved community based program celebrating environmental education, sustainability in the arts, and community enrichment.

BWW Review: INTIMATE APPAREL at Playhouse On Park Photo BWW Review: INTIMATE APPAREL at Playhouse On Park
by Joseph Harrison - Feb 20, 2018

The art of creation, whether it be a beautiful painting, a poem, or a piece of clothing can be a very personal experience. The artist expresses herself through each stroke of the pen or flick of the paintbrush and aims to capture the world as she sees it or as she would like it to be. But creation, like life, can be as messy as it is beautiful, as flawed as it is perfect, and as simple as it is magnificent. Such is the life of Esther Mills, the character at the center of Pulitzer Prize winner, Lynn Nottage's play, INTIMATE APPAREL, which is now playing at West Hartford's Playhouse on Park.
