LOCAL: BFG Collective

Our powers combine to form...:
Three of New York City’s top indie theatre companies, Boomerang Theatre Company, Flux Theatre Ensemble, and Gideon Productions, have joined forces to form the BFG Collective, which will hold a six-month-long residency at Long Island City’s The Secret Theatre. Productions will include Mac Rogers’ sci-fi epic The Honeycomb Trilogy, Boomerang Theatre Company’s revival of Tom Stoppard’s The Real Thing, William Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing, and the New York premiere of Melissa Gawlowski’s Spring Tides, and Flux Theatre Ensemble’s world premiere of August Schulenburg’s new play, Deinde.
Consolidating theaters is an idea that's been thrown around since the financial crisis. Three years into my theater company, I have a hard time imagining that level of commitment, but I'm looking forward to seeing how it pans out.
