Airmid Theatre Company
January 22, 2011
I am a theatre professor with a specialization in plays by women, so I have been interested in Airmid for awhile. The summer before last, I was in New York for a research trip. I took a train to Long Island to see both Airmid's children's play and a fabulous production of Aphra Behn's The Emperor of the Moon. Both productions were staged outdoors in a beautiful park, and both were very good. The company operates on donations, bringing free theatre to its community. I think they also serve an important function by bringing attention to neglected classic works by female authors. I am impressed with what they were able to do on a shoestring budget.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Making outdoor theatre audiences happy.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
The park setting is a mixed blessing: it is very lovely, but it is also very far from the train station if one does not have a car.
Professional with expertise in this field & Enjoyed two wonderful productions.
