You chose: directors

  • The masterminds behind the 2017 Authors Directing Author Neil LaButte, Marta Buchaca, and Marco Calvani.
    If you love theater, be sure not to miss the AdA (Author directing Author) project at La MaMa theater. This is no ordinary show however; various playwrights put their individual pieces together to form a series of one-act plays around a central theme. However, each one-act play is directed by one of the other writers, not its original author. The show begins January 19th and will be running for three weeks.
  • In a radical change of policy, the Italian government has just appointed twenty new directors for museums and archaeological sites from Milan to Paestum. Among them are ten women. Seven are non-Italians, such as German art historian Eike Schmidt, who will head the Uffizi Galleries in Florence. Not everyone is thrilled at the sweep of this new cultural broom.
