“We found a better way of doing things. Found? We forged a better way, we scratched it out, hacked it, ripped it, tore it, yanked it, clawed it out of the resisting, unyielding nose-thumbing environment.”
-Zelda Fichandler, as quoted in An Ideal Theater*

As part of the 2014 TCG National Conference: Crossing Borders, we’ll be featuring “vision bursts”: short excerpts from Todd London’s book, An Ideal Theater: Founding Visions for a New American Art, performed by theatre leaders from across the country.

An Ideal Theater is a wide-ranging, inspiring documentary history of the American theatre movement, collecting over forty essays, manifestos, letters and speeches from the visionary founders that goaded it into being. These Vision Bursts, each featuring a different theatre leader reading a short excerpt from the book, will help reconnect the Conference to the trailblazing genius of the founders of our resident theatre movement.

Learn more about An Ideal Theater here, and how you can participate in the Ideal Theater Circle salon here.

Then register for the Conference before the Early Bird Deadline of April 18!
