A Parable of A Queen

Posted in Friends of On the Square, On the Square Productions News, Reading on November 19, 2010 by On the Square Productions

Next in the On the Square Developmental Play Reading Series, A Parable of A Queen by Alex DeWitt.  A fellow Wisconsinite, we’ve gotten to know Alex through one of our professors at University of Wisconsin, Norma Saldivar.  We are thrilled to be working with Alex- not to mention a fellow cheesehead!  Here’s a brief summary of the play:

“A Parable of a Queen” is the passionate tale of a woman’s power set in an allegorical kingdom far away and long ago. It is an intricate story of intrigue, love, lust, loyalty and trust, the intersection of three people whose deep desires conflict with their duties and obligations to the court, the hierarchy and each other.

While in Astoria…

Posted in Friends of On the Square on November 6, 2010 by On the Square Productions

Do as the Astorians do…and all good Astorians know about the Brick Cafe on 31st Ave and 33rd St. A mixture of Mediterranean and continental cuisine, it’s both cozy and elegant at the same time. It’s definitely one of OTSP’s favorite haunts for either brunch or dinner.

There is something for everyone here. Whether its their $25 Prix Fixe Menu, their Live Music Night every Wednesday, or their upcoming Holiday Shopping night, you must make The Brick Cafe part of your Astoria experience. Also the olive spread they give you with your bread is amazing!

One of the most wonderful things about the Brick is their support of local artists. We were so lucky to work with them on Midsummer, earlier this year, as they hosted our opening night festivities. The service is superb and the drinks were flowing! Check out their menus! We will be working with them again this fall on Monroe, Illinois: Over Here/Townie. They have offered to host an Astoria Artist’s Brunch for us in the near future, so be sure and stay tuned to our blog and website for more details.

Please take the time to check out their website, and pay a visit to one of those upcoming events. Whether its brunch or dinner- you won’t be disappointed!

The Perfect Space Located in the Heart of Tribeca

Posted in Friends of On the Square, On the Square Productions News on October 27, 2010 by On the Square Productions

Hey NY Theatre-goers! Unless you’ve been living under a rock the past year and a half or so, you’ve heard of Space on White, one of the new kids on the block of New York rehearsal spaces. On the Square has had the pleasure of working with them several times now, and one thing that sets them apart from other studios, is their support of the independent theatre artists.

Located at 81 White St., it’s just down the street from The Flea Theater and Walker Space, a hot bed for independent theatre artists like OTSP. Direct from their website:

Space on White is a socially conscious space for artists located in Tribeca, New York City. Artists or organizations can rent out studios that cater to acting, music, and dance rehearsal. Our great energy and environment encourages collaboration and growth for artists and their audiences. The open, spacious designs of the spaces act as blank canvases that are committed to the artist first and foremost

Perhaps you remember the our YouTube video for the Race for Space campaign? Space on White reached out to thousands of independent theatre companies, offering free rehearsal space to anyone the folks who made the most creative video. On the Square entered and received over 2700 hits thanks to our incredible network. In addition to an art gallery, acting classes with Larry Singer, Space on White also offers an artist residency program which helps with marketing, rehearsal space, and other resources.

On the Square will be rehearsing at Space on White for Monroe, Illinois: Over Here/Townie, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to work with them!
