Boomerang Theatre Company
The Boomerang Theatre Company is an award-winning Off-Off-Broadway theatre company based in New York City. Boomerang annually produces a season composed of three programs: free outdoor Shakespeare productions in parks throughout NYC; an indoor repertory series of new, classic and neglected plays; and FIRST FLIGHT, a new play development series of workshops and readings. In the past ten years, the Boomerang Theatre Company has produced 38 full productions, including six world premieres, four New York City premieres and reinvented producing in repertory for small theatres. Boomerang has been awarded two New York Innovative Theatre Awards for Burning the Old Man by Kelly McAllister, an OOBR Award for The Misanthrope by Moliere, and was selected as a September 2005 recipient of The STAR Initiative from WNYC radio. The company also presented the United States premiere of Irvine (Trainspotting) Welsh's You'll Have Had Your Hole in the NYC International Fringe Festival. Two plays produced by Boomerang have been published in annual Plays and Playwrights anthologies.
Through the FIRST FLIGHT series, Boomerang has developed 35 new works through readings and workshops. We are honored to work with some of the most exciting emerging playwrights in America, including Kelly McAllister, Mike Folie, Francis Kuzler, Steven Gridley, Mary Jett Parsley, and Peter Shelburne. These plays have gone on to production both with Boomerang and with other theaters across the country.
The Boomerang Theatre Company is dedicated to challenging audiences through live theatre. Through utilizing the classic system of rotating repertory, we offer audiences and actors alike the opportunity to see new, classic, and neglected plays of different styles and genres. By this, we hope to move both playgoer and performer on an emotional and intellectual level, while maintaining high entertainment value.
