November Theatre | Your Theatre Alternative

It is with great sadness that we have to announce yet another passing of great artist that has been a big part of November Theatre's latest phase of work. Barbara Vann passed away peacefully in her NY home on Wednesday, while being cared for by her daughter Regan and her creative partner Chris Brandt.

Too many bright lights in the theatre have been going out lately. Yesterday Jeff Unger passed away after a brave battle with Cancer. Jeff was the original Musical Director of The Black Rider in 1998 (later sharing this role with Corinne Kessel).

ILSA, Queen of the Nazi Love camp played 4 shows at the Medicine Show Theatre.  Opening and closing nights were sold out.  Playwright Blake Brooker flew down for the occasion, saying it was best production of the show he'd seen (that he hadn't directed).  We are so proud to have brought this show to NY audiences.

Since the war ended, the Colonel has been hiding in South America, while in Germany, Ilsa has continued to entertain men in her customary way. After decades apart, these two lovable Nazis go on a journey to find each other, by following the trail of top-secret materials left by Hitler himself.

Currently, Founding Artistic Producer Michael Scholar, Jr. is living in New York getting his MFA in Directing from Columbia University under Anne Bogart.  He is directing/producing work there with November Theatre.
