Introducing The 68 Cent Crew Theatre Company and their inaugural performance in New York City, HOME BREWED. Artistic Director Ronnie Marmo (General Hospital, Deuces Wild, West of Brooklyn, Pizza with Bullets) presents a night of One Act plays exclusively written, directed, produced and starring members of the 68 Cent Crew Theatre Company.
Eleven years ago, Ronnie Marmo, with nothing but 68 cents in his pocket and a dream of creating a positive, artistic, and supportive environment for actors, founded the 68 Cent Crew Theatre Company in Los Angeles, California. The mission, to create “a community dedicated to assisting actors, writers, directors and producers in the realization of their creative and professional identity.”
Since its inception, 68 has produced over fifty successful shows and festivals including, Lenny Bruce Is Back, Bill W. and Dr. Bob, The Knights of Mary Phagan, as well as 13 by John Patrick Shanley Collection, as a festival, in its entirety. Lauded as one of the top 99 seat theatres in Los Angeles, Theatre 68 has earned a reputation for first-rate productions and has fostered hundreds of artists through the years.
A native New Yorker raised in New Jersey, Marmo soon felt compelled to bring Theatre 68 back home, and so, in August of 2011, the New York chapter of the 68 Cent Crew Theatre Company was formed. Now the resident company of the Arthur Seelen Theatre at the Tony award winning Drama Book Shop, the New York chapter is committed to the same standard as their western family.
This group presents, “Home Brewed”, the premiere production of 68 NYC; a collection of One Act Plays written, directed and produced solely by members of the company. HOME BREWED opened on March 29th and runs thru April 27th, Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights. All performances will be held at the Arthur Seelen Theatre at The Drama Book Shop Theatre Space, 250 West 40th Street #1, New York, New York, 10018 (on 40th street between Broadway and 8th). Tickets are $20. Running time is 75 minutes with no intermission.
