HDP Author’s Production in Tucson

Best Place to See Original Plays

In the Tucson Star

Where can you see exciting new plays being produced around these parts? Almost anywhere, it turns out, because Tucson’s theaters produce an extraordinary number of new works, often by local writers. This year saw The Rogue’s The Decameron by Patrick Baliani, and Ten Chimneys by Jeffrey Hatcher at Arizona Theatre Company. Beowulf Alley Theatre Company had Fronting the Order by Warren G. Bodow and Head: The Musical by Kevin Fry, in addition to their annual Page on the Stage Festival. Winding Road Theater Ensemble produced Toni Press-Coffman’s Armor, and Live Theatre Workshop’s Etcetera series presented Christopher Johnson’s The Eating Disorder Talent Show, and High Crimes, a musical by Damian Lemar Hudson. Borderlands Theater had two premieres: Kara Hartzler’s No Roosters in the Desert and Martin Zimmerman’s White Tie Ball—as well as the annual update of A Tucson Pastorella. Add to that the locally written escapades at the Gaslight Theatre, and the very first Tucson Fringe Theater Festival, and you have a theater community that truly deserves commendation.
