LUMBERYARD Center for Film and Performing Arts's summer 2019 season will bring some of New York City's most exciting artists to the organization's state-of-the-art Hudson Valley facility, built just 101 miles from Manhattan to provide a crucial lifeline for the performing arts ecosystem. New American work and the institutions built to present it in NYC are more technologically advanced than ever before; however, there is a critical gap in the system, as artists can no longer transition from studio to theater with only a few days of technical rehearsal, and NYC presenters can't afford to close their doors for extended technical rehearsals.

BWW Review: SEDER at Hartford Stage Photo BWW Review: SEDER at Hartford Stage
by Joseph Harrison - Nov 5, 2017

Why is tonight different than all other nights? A question that is asked around the tables of Jewish households on Passover around the world every year. It is a question that causes those gathered to consider the suffering of their ancestors in Egypt, at the hand of Pharoah and to consider the little Pharoahs in their own lives. This question is asked for the first time by one family wrought with secrets, guilt and a need for answers in the world premiere of Sarah Gancher's SEDER at Hartford Stage.
