Wide Eyed Winks

A series of staged readings presented free at The Underground Lounge in Manhattan. The readings ranged from Shakespearean classics to Contemporary published works to original plays by local NYC playwrights. 

Photos from each of the 11 Winks.

This season of "Winks" was intended to develop work that will further define Wide Eyed as a company, as well as its place in the New York arts world. We cast a wide net to bring a variety of NYC theatre artists together in one room. And admission was FREE! 

From this series we discovered and are currently in production for

Dead Special Crabs by Dan Kitrosser!
