ROMANTIC THEATRE LAB

New group is forming for actors, writers, and directors interested in romantic-realist drama and comedy of "heroes and heroines pursuing values." Initial activities will be weekly sessions of works-in-progress presented by and for group members, and bimonthly play readings to the public. Criticism in weekly sessions will be according to written esthetic standards and procedures. Feedback on writing will focus primarily on plot--its ingenuity, logic, and effectiveness in expressing characterizations and theme--and secondarily on stylistic elements such as dialogue. Feedback on directing and acting will focus on integrity of thought, action, and emotion in realizing the writer's story. Producer states: "Criticism will be respectful of the art and artist, emphasizing the fuller development and application of positive elements." Artists will be invited based on the artistic director's assessment of their ability, professionalism, and agreement on esthetic principles. Producer states: "We are not looking for diversity; nor do we seek unthinking acceptance of authority or tradition. We seek independent thinkers who agree on fundamentals and can come to trust each other's feedback." Scripts to be worked on in sessions will be screened initially by the artistic director. Producer states: "Obscene language or behavior or any other flouting of the splendor of man and reality will not be suffered." Participants in each week's session will be asked to contribute to that session's space rental (not more than $5). No other fees or commitments. Submit resumes (and pictures for actors) to Romantic Theatre Lab, c/o Ron Pisaturo, 353 Amsterdam Ave., NYC 10024.
