Excellent news from Lorcan Otway about the Theatre 80 on St. Mark's Place:
Here is a quick update, with the big news, film is once again going to be seen at Theatre 80...
He also notes:
We have a Web site, now being built — Theatre80stmarks.com. The schedule will be posted to the site as deposit checks are in hand. At present we are in final negotiations to present several operas, ballet, a musical, and the big announcement, we are installing high def. digital projections, so that we can, on occasion present film again at Theatre 80, though our focus will remain live theater. “The Pied Pipers of the Lower East Side played to appreciative audiences here last month, and it was a pleasure to have the company in our theater, and we look forward to their possible return soon with a new play. To enquire as to availability of Theatre 80 for performances, screenings, private parties or rehearsal space, e-mail Lori Singleton at Lori.theatre80.gmail.com.
As always, the Otway family wishes to extend our thanks to the patrons of Theatre 80 for their support and expressed good wishes.
A double dose of good news, with the recent report that the former Charles on Avenue B will show films again one day...
