News: What The Philadelphia Theatre Initiative Means to You

Posted June 16th, 2009

The Philadelphia Theatre Initiative announced their 2009-2010 grants today, and I’m proud to report that they’ll be supporting a Live Arts show for the 2010 festival! Remember Gatz, a 2007 festival production from Elevator Repair Service? You should, because it was great. PTI has lent its support to us to commission a new work from Elevator Repair Service, an adaptation of Ernest Hemingway’s The Sun Also Rises, which will see its world premiere here in 2010.

But check out the other grantees – it’s a lineup of great projects with some great alumni, both individuals and groups, from our past festivals. It’s great to see such an awesome grouping of shows, and I’m pretty excited for what’s coming up in the next couple years through these awards. Congrats, everyone!
