The Beautiful Soup Theater Collective was founded in the summer of 2010 by its Artistic Director, Steven Carl McCasland. McCasland, who founded Group Therapy Productions while a student at Pace University, has been directing in New York (Medea, A Streetcar Named Desire, A Midsummer Night's Dream, Antigone, Death of a Salesman, Hamlet, and others) since 2005. 20bet

Beautiful Soup uses theater to bring to light our own struggles and create a dialog. Exploring new works and classics in innovative ways, stretching a shoe-string budget to create visually enchanting minimalist productions, the Collective honors a different charitable organization with each production. Often using the themes of the piece at hand, (Crossing Brooklyn, a musical about a teacher, benefited Artists Striving to End Poverty, who visit third-world countries to teach the arts), a portion of funds raised at the box office are donated to the chosen charity.

While serving the community, the Soup strives to bring light to all types of theater, new and old. Each season, the Collective presents two Shakespearean revivals, a workshop of a world premiere play, a play by a major writer within the last 150 years (Ibsen, Miller, Williams, Foote, Chekhov, O'Neill, to name a few...), a workshop of a new musical 20bet en ligne. Each season will also feature a world premiere children's theater production. 

Previous productions include: BLACK [Billy Learns About Captain Kirk] & BLUE, William Shakespeare's Hamlet, Crossing Brooklyn: a musical by Jenny Giering and Laura Harrington, The WSXR Players' Present Their June 7, 1944 Broadcast of William Shakespeare's TWELFTH NIGHT, or What You Will and Steven Carl McCasland's world premiere play, Alice Au Pays Des Merveilles (Alice's Adventures in Wonderland)

Theater can be for the masses if we let it. With The Beautiful Soup Theater Collective, you can return to your roots and explore the boundaries of theater while continuing to serve your community. 20bet paris sportif
