This morning a profile of my New York International Fringe Festival play, Track Twelve, was featured on the Amtrak blog. How did I swing it? A little elbow grease and a lot of Twitter.
“How productive were you the last time you rode one of our trains? Whatever your answer is, Emily probably has you beat.
The play chronicles four train travelers waiting out a snow storm in New York Penn Station, a familiar scene for Emily who waited out a historic Washington, D.C., blizzard inside Union Station.” – Read More Here.
A writer friend of mine, David Davila, edits the “Bohemian Dreams” column that appears Mondays on Crazy Town Blog. The tag line is: Discover NYC’s most promising starving artists before they’re rich and famous. Not so sure that I count among the starving artists, but I’m excited to be featured none-the-less. Check out the shouts-out to My FringeNYC show, Track Twelve, and my web series GROUP.
“Emily Comisar has been hanging around the Bohemian scene for years. The young (and might I add, very attractive) playwright, and native Texan, can usually be found among the locals in Williamsburg where she’s more than likely writing something brilliant or producing something hilarious for online audiences. Her web series, GROUP, about a support group has been picked up by several online TV stations and she’s currently self-producing her first full length play, TRACK TWELVE, at this year’s New York International Fringe Festival.” – Read more here
While the web page for Track Twelve is great, what’s even better is the show’s Facebook page. We’ll be posting regular updates about the show, behind the scenes photos, interviews with the cast and creative team, and info about ticket sales — so give the page a like and join the Track Twelve fan-base online.
Huge props are due to the entire team I worked with in 2011 and 2012 on GROUP: The Web Series. It has officially become the little show that could! Starting today, 20/20 Productions will be putting out one new episode per week, so keep your eyes peeled.
A few weeks ago, I found out that my first full-length play, Track Twelve, had been selected to participate in this summer’s New York International Fringe Festival. A few days ago, I connected with four other female playwrights going to FringeNYC this summer to create a massive, and massively talented, union of the arts: The Paper Collective.
This summer, we proudly present:
Radio Mara Mara by Libby Emmons, directed by Ali Ayala
Track Twelve by Emily Comisar, directed by Josh Penzell
The A-is-for-Abortion Play by Cassandra Hume, directed by Joanna Bowzer
The Skype Show by Jody Christopherson and Michael deRoos
Baptized by Kristen Lishen
Learn more about the festival at fringenyc.org and stay tuned for more from The Paper Collective.
On May 6th, my short play Reunion appeared in an evening of One-Acts about Texas, hosted by the Lone Star Theatre Co. I was honored to appear alongside short plays by David O. Davila, Judith Leora, Lindsay Hicks, Lindsey Van de Kirk, and Daniella Benavides.
Getting connected to Lone Star Theatre Company was truly a case of being in the right place at the right time, and being open to the right opportunities. Next up, a full-length Texas play!
The best part of making a web series is…I’ll be honest, pretty much every part is the best part. HOWEVER, almost two years after Shawn, Amy, and I sat down to write “Group,” the best part is getting online distribution, care of Blip.tv, a curated web site dedicated to presenting only the highest quality video content for viewer consumption. Check out our page and be sure to share it with friends.
Yes, all good things must come to an end. With that in mind, I’m proud to present the finale of GROUP: The Webseries. Written and directed by Amy E. Witting.
