Ars Nova, the New York City–based theater development program, is currently accepting applications for their emerging writers collective, Play Group.
Eichner’s Fuse game show, “Funny or Die’s Billy on the Street,” is in the midst of its successful, viral third season, but the comedian remembers a time when he wasn’t as fortunate.
Now in its 10th year, Off-Off-Broadway company Ars Nova has been the incubator for such hits as Bridget Everett’s “At Least It’s Pink” and “Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812.”
The inaugural group of participants for The Writer’s Room includes Adam Bock and Justine Levine, Thomas Bradshaw, Samuel D. Hunter, and Sharyn Rothstein.
Dave Malloy’s “Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812,” beautifully staged by Rachel Chavkin, drags slightly but offers an insightful musical adaptation of Tolstoy’s “War and Peace.”
