Flux Sunday, July 24th

(What is Flux Sunday?) Our last Flux Sunday before we leave on our 6th annual retreat was our biggest yet, and it’s a shame to end that the momentum just as it was getting going (and yet, we’re glad to go). We also finished Perse and Viva Fidel, two plays developed entirely at Flux Sundays….

Flux Sunday, July 17th

By August Schulenburg (What is Flux Sunday?) Our second Flux after the end of Ajax in Iraq was a roll-up-your-sleeves kind of day. We took on a ton of pages from Perse, reaching the climax of the play; we neared the end of Viva Fidel, and we moved towards the middle of Now Comes The…

New World Iliads, Part Two and Three

(Photo: Anna Lamadrid. Pictured: Jelena Stupljanin, Jason Howard) New World Iliads was an interesting ForePlay series for Flux. On the one hand, our benefit that kicked off the series was well-attended, and represented a high water mark for quality in the series. The two that followed were both strong artistically, but due to the overwhelming…

Flux Sunday, April 10th

(What is Flux Sunday?) Playwrights: David Ian Lee (The Curing Room) Actors: Ken Glickfeld, Jane Taylor, Matthew Archambault, Isaiah Tanenbaum, Kari Riely, Brian Pracht. This was a very different Flux Sunday. One playwright, one play, no directors, two laptops, and an iPad 2 (no trees were harmed in the making of this Flux Sunday). This…

Have Another #6

Our next installment of Have Another is Wednesday the 6th from 7PM-10PM. We’ll be returning to the friendly confines of Jimmy’s #43, located downstairs at 43 East 7th Street between 2nd and 3rd Ave. There is no cover, just some of our favorite scenes from Flux Sunday shared over drinks with friends. I’m especially excited…

Have Another #5 Pictures

(Photo by Isaiah Tanenbaum. Pictured: Mike Mihm and surprise cameo artist Jane Lincoln Taylor) It was good to have another Have Another! In spite of the holiday and cold weather, we had a big warm house to share scenes from Ever Ever, Sacrifice, and Denny and Lila. To learn more about the artists and scenes…

Letter from Birmingham Jail, and Theater

Isaiah here. As I try to do on this day every year, I read through what I (along with Isaac Butler) think may be the greatest American argumentative essay, MLK’s Letter from Birmingham Jail, written to white, moderate clergymen reluctant to support his work protesting segregation. The wonderful thing about returning to a familiar text…

Flux Sunday, December 12th

(What is Flux Sunday?) After two weeks off (one for Thanksgiving, one for NET’s Micro-Fest), we returned to our trusty Flux Sunday back-up at 520 8th ave. That meant reads around the table, which, while not as fun as playing on our feet, does give us the opportunity to read more pages. And they were…

Flux Sunday, November 21st
