With the November 6 performance of EINSTEIN by Gabriel Emanuel we are proud to celebrate the 50th DARK MONDAY @ MERLIN show!
NEAT – New English American Theatre has been performing a new project on the first Monday of every month at MERLIN since October, 2013.
The spectrum of projects that have been performed at MERLIN during those FOUR YEARS is eclectic and wide. They have included Themed Tributes to Composers such as Cole Porter, George Gershwin, Bob Dylan and Poets, such as Edgar Lee Masters, T.S.Eliot, Edgar Allen Poe, Dylan Thomas, Don Marquis, Roald Dahl, Plays focusing on Adam & Eve, Albert Einstein, Marlene Dietrich, Lee Harvey Oswald, Elvis Presley, Laurel & Hardy, Radio Plays featuring The Marx Brothers, Orson Welles adaptation of Dracula, The Firesign Theatre’s Nick Danger, and the Classic Radio Thriller; Sorry, Wrong Number. We’ve performed many Short Stories by O.Henry, Stephen King and Rudyard Kipling, Texts by Alfred Hitchcock, Mark Twain, Arthur Miller, and there were countless German Premiere Performances of Contemporary Playwrights, such as Paul Auster, Ellen Byron, Elton Townend Jones, Michael Leeds, Lisa Soland, Julie Gilbert, Gabriel Emanuel… not to mention the Talent of Local Playwrights, Authors, Poets, Composers, Musicians such as Lisa Ritchie, Michael Hilton, Jadi Campbell, Stephen Thomas, Daniel Regelbrugge, Michael Hecht, Gregory L. Mays
Mastering a Premiere every four weeks, alongside our properly staged theatre productions, takes a lot of dedication, time and idealism. To everyone who has ever been a part of a DARK MONDAY show, I would like to take this opportunity to say THANK YOU for making this crazy idea succeed!
