Newsletter – March 2014

Anthropological research suggests that the story of Little Red Riding Hood may have originated over 2000 years ago. Many generations and iterations later, it became the folktale with which we are familiar. But in the beginning there was simply a storyteller and a listener. Then the listener became the storyteller – changing little details to suit themselves and […]

It’s almost time. We have whittled down our show selections for the 2014-2015 season and are in final negotiations with publishers and playwrights.

Newsletter – December 2013

Not only are we waist deep in holiday celebrations at The Fox, it’s also season selection time. I did manage a quick jaunt to New York this week in search of new show titles.  The shows I saw were great and, of course, the energy in Times Square was amazing, but it all felt a bit hollow. This […]
