ELECTRONIC LINK JOURNEY - NEWS NEW AND NOTEWORTHY Tangent Theatre Company: No Frivolity, Please In the ever-expanding New York theater world comes a breath of fresh air. Tangent Theatre Company, co-founded by Keith Teller (co-artistic director), Michael Rhodes (co-artistic director) and Andrea Miller (producer/general manager), has a mission to "produce plays that matter." A subsidiary of Hudson Valley's Apple Blossom Productions, which was founded by Mr. Teller in 1986, Tangent is more specific to Off-Off-Broadway in NYC. The group began production of their first original work, WANDERERS, penned by founding member Michael Rhodes, on September 8, 2000. Truly a hands on trio (Teller is the director, and Miller the producer of the play), they are already industry veterans. In this bustling theater community, new companies seem to pop up nearly as often as do new shows. Tangent is one of the newest additions. With a mission to produce independent, yet serious works, this group of devotees has not allowed the recent trend toward deliberate weirdness to cloud their goals. Opting to be original, rather than experimental is an important distinction. Often, the greatest resonance, and in fact, novelty, can be rendered by works which are trying to encompass no more than their own slice of space. When faced with the burden to be different for the sake of difference, many playwrights, actors, and theater companies themselves sacrifice the audience and the quality of their work in the process. For Tangent's first production of an original work, the sober choice to mount WANDERERS, which is also author Rhodes' first play, a romantic comedy that has both feet firmly set in reality, is evidence of the three founders artistic insight. Not eerie, odd or ludicrous, this is a comfortable play that never attempts to shock, appall or thwart the audience. It is your basic love story. The difference here is that this one is written, produced and performed by ambitious artists, who have already contributed to the stage with their drive and creativity. If this is any indication, we should be able to look forward to many more well-produced shows that go down easy. - Kessa De Santis - Read the review of WANDERERS on our Entertainment/Off-Broadway page.
