From a tiny spark…

Spark 2009 poster, the logo eye in front of radiating orange circles over the word SPARK, June 19, 2009, 5 Companies. 5 Plays. 1 Night. You pick the winner. theatrealliance.org/spark Watch new theatre ignite before your eyes. 7:00pm @ Plays & Players 1714 Delancy Street $20 Admission.

The Theatre Alliance of Greater Philadelphia‘s Spark Showcase is a great way to see new work by small and nascent theatre companies. Five short works in one sitting pretty much guarantees that you’ll come away having seen some new theatre that you connect with. This year, you’ll even get to vote for the recipient of the Hotel Obligado Audience Choice Award for New Work.

But it’s one night only, so don’t miss out.

Full disclosure: The Theatre Alliance is my oldest client and one of my favorites. I’ve seen them evolve and grow stronger ever since I first started working with them. In a nutshell, they’re advocates for Philly’s diverse and robust theatre community, particularly those groups and individuals who don’t have the weight and budgets of more established theaters. The arts in PA are under threat, so events like these are vital to Philly’s arts and cultural future.

    Wow, Chris. This is a fantastic poster and the concept is interesting. You know how David and I love theater. We’ll have to see if we’re available and look into this. Marilyn
