New York Stage and Film (Johanna Pfaelzer, Artistic Director; Thomas Pearson, Executive Director, Mark Linn-Baker, Max Mayer, Leslie Urdang, Producing Directors) and Vassar College (Ed Cheetham, Producing Director) have announced the line-up of their 2012 Powerhouse Theater season.

Season highlights will include:

Johanna Pfaelzer, the artistic director for New York Stage and Film, noted that the works in development this season “will take us from Massachusetts in 1702 to a present-day newsroom in Rochester; from 1970’s Brooklyn to New Orleans in 1836; from a Soviet prison in 1952 to the Chicago World’s Fairs. These plays and musicals are ambitious in their scope, wildly varied in their style, and each one is a story that demands to be told in a theater.”

Edward Cheetham, producing director for Powerhouse Theater at Vassar College, noted that in addition to the three outdoor classic presentations and soundpainting performances, this year will feature a residency by noted theater artist Erik Ehn that will culminate in a performance of Ehn’s Burnt Umber, directed by Mia Rovegno (July 20).

Subscriptions to the 2012 Powerhouse Theater season are available online beginning Wednesday, May 16, with single tickets available online Friday, June 1powerhouse.vassar.edu. The Powerhouse Theater box office on the Vassar College campus (124 Raymond Avenue, Poughkeepsie, NY) opens Wednesday, June 6: (845) 437-5599 or [email protected].
