During the summer of 2009, AFTER THE REVOLUTION was born.  It was produced through our Fellowship program using actors from our non-equity corps and directed by Tamara Fisch, the 2009 Bill Foeller Fellow.

 In 2010, AFTER THE REVOLUTION became a full production and was produced on our Nikos Stage. Carolyn Cantor directed (she also directed the 2009 production NOT WAVING and was the 2004 Bill Foeller Fellow) and the production soared with rave reviews and sold-out houses.

What started as a small workshop through WTF's Fellowship program in the summer of 2006 will officially open on Broadway tonight.  Take a look at the timeline of BLOODY BLOODY and what it took to get from an idea to a full-scale production.  You can also check out the Broadway cast here where you'll see many familiar WTF faces including Kate Cullen Roberts who has been a part of this show since it began at WTF!  We congratulate the cast, crew and creative teams - break a leg!

If you've been living under a rock and have no idea what BLOODY BLOODY ANDREW JACKSON is - take a peek at this video montage.

Our last goodbye | WTF Moving Out

As we leave Williamstown for the summer, we thought we'd share some of our thoughts about leaving and how the summer has gone with you. Thanks for watching and reading--we will, of course, be back again next summer.  In the meantime, stay tuned for updates about our 2011 season and don't forget to SAVE THE DATE for our NYC Gala on November 15, 2010.
