The Evening Crane Theatre is a NYC-based theatre ensemble dedicated to the resurrection of forgotten 19th century masterworks, and the presentation of new plays in a lyrical mode. We seek works which:
1) evade imprisonment in the specious present, 2) sunder symbol from the quotidian, 3) articulate malefic wonder.
Founded in 2016 by playwright/director Michael Seebold, The Evening Crane Theatre has produced and performed shows Off-Broadway, as well as in Brooklyn, Manhattan's East Village, and around the Hudson Valley of upstate New York. Festival performances have included the KeyBank Rochester Fringe Festival (2018) and the International Edgar Allan Poe Festival & Awards in Baltimore (2018).
Since its founding, The Evening Crane Theatre has dramatized each of the verse plays of Lord Byron at least once.
In 2019, The Evening Crane Theatre adapted Seebold's original stage play Enoptromancy, or When We Meet As One to film. Read more about the forthcoming feature at: www.enoptromancy.com.
Evening Crane's recent stage productions have included Brooklyn and Manhattan premieres of two original works by Seebold: the four act heightened language play Four Seasons, and a play for 100 characters/actors Malefic Wonder.
