We are excited to announce that we are Ars Nova's new company in residence. The residency comes with Ars Nova's unwavering support and the commission of a new piece specifically for Ars Nova.
"HEARTY PARTY A chicken, a mermaid, a sad clown and a Navajo chief crowd a motel room in New Mexico, boozing and dancing and bobbing for apples. Riotous and melancholy, this Halloween bacchanal at the close of the Mad Ones’ The Essential Straight & Narrow lets the good times roll and then, as evening collapses into morning, the bad ones, too."-ALEXIS SOLOSKI

Founded in 2009, The Mad Ones are a New York City-based company dedicated to creating visceral, ensemble-driven, highly detailed theatrical experiences that examine and illuminate American nostalgia. We devise plays through the ongoing collaboration of performers/writers, designers, and director, with each artist playing an essential role in a piece’s creation from the inception. Our productions appropriate popular American genres, playfully re-imagine world history, and incorporate live music in service of a delicately woven, wholly articulated, character-driven universe.
The Mad Ones are Co-Artistic Directors Marc Bovino (performer/writer), Joe Curnutte (performer/writer), Lila Neugebauer (director/writer), Stephanie Wright Thompson (performer/writer); Company Members Michael Dalto (performer/music director), Stowe Nelson (sound designer), Sarah Lunnie (dramaturg); and Affiliated Artists Mike Inwood (lighting designer), and Laura Jellinek (set designer).
