NEW YORK CITY - The New Group, led by founding Artistic Director Scott Elliott and Executive Director Geoff Rich, is an award-winning, artist-driven company with a commitment to developing and producing powerful, contemporary theater. Over 15 seasons, they've won 9 Obie Awards, 28 Drama Desk Nominations, 6 Lortel Awards and 3 Tony® Awards - here's a look at their upcoming 2011 - 2012 season.

Fall 2011
World Premiere
BURNING
By Thomas Bradshaw
Directed by Scott Elliott
Burning is the Off-Broadway debut of downtown phenomenon and Guggenheim Award-winner Thomas Bradshaw. In intersecting stories spanning two eras, a contemporary Black painter who hides his race goes to Germany for a show, only to find that the gallery owner has misinterpreted his work. And in the '80s a homeless teenager comes to New York to become an actor and is taken in by two gay men, who are themselves producing a new play. Titillating, taboo-testing and psychosexually insightful, this epic tale of ambition and self-invention bursts open the conceits of the worlds of art and theatre.

Winter 2012
World Premiere
RUSSIAN TRANSPORT
By Erika Sheffer
Directed by Scott Elliott
Set in the Russian-Jewish enclave of Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn, Russian Transport is a deeply personal, emotionally charged tale of an immigrant couple, their two assimilated teenagers and the fierce and fiery upheaval they experience when sexy, mysterious Uncle Boris from the old country comes to stay with them for his shot at the American dream. Part family drama, part heart-pounding thriller, this stunning debut from Erika Sheffer beautifully captures the complex and conflicting layers of striving, joy, pain and terror of one very particular immigrant experience.

Spring 2012
World Premiere
AN EARLY HISTORY OF FIRE
By David Rabe
Directed by Jo Bonney
From one of the most influential playwrights of our time, a world premiere set at the tipping point of the early 1960s. In a Midwestern town, Danny's world is defined by friendship and loyalty. But the bigger world is encroaching in the form of Karen, back from college in the east, alluring and unsettling because of what she now knows. Still, Danny can't escape the grip of his immigrant father, who is mourning a vanished world of lost prestige and clinging to his only son. A whirl in longing and confusion, An Early History of Fire marks David Rabe's return to The New Group, following our acclaimed revival of Hurlyburly.

Off-Broadway, On Tour & in London
AVENUE Q
music/lyrics by Robert Lopez and Jeff Marx
book by Jeff Whitty
based on an original concept by: Robert Lopez and Jeff Marx
directed by Jason Moore
AVENUE Q is the story of Princeton, a bright-eyed college grad who comes to New York City with big dreams and a tiny bank account. It's been described as "Sesame Street meets South Park".

Happy Freuds - Echo Of Sounds
Independent: May 31, 2019
Stream/Buy on Bandcamp
Stream it on Spotify

With tight musicians and intriguing lyrics, Happy Freuds delivers high energy guitar rock with stylistic flair on Echo Of Sounds, their debut release. Produced with a minimum of overdubs or fixes, the album consists of a mix of original material, rearrangements of works from others and selected, less known, classic rock.

A kinetic rhythm section is the bones of the music, offering interesting patterns that augment sometimes unexpected harmonic changes. It's brainy rock, in other words, meant for music lovers who can appreciate the quality. Teo's vocals are raspy and expressive, growly when necessary - perfect for the musical mode. Teo also covers lead guitar, adapt at ear worm leads, with a tone that can be clean or dirty as required

Their sound ranges from straight up hard rock in tracks like The Mountain to the pop-flavoured acoustic Background Noise and folky To …
