Projects recently, Simon Stephens's "Harper Regan" (Atlantic); now, Laura Marks's "Bethany" (Women's Project);
 next, a pirate musical to be produced on a sailboat in New York Harbor.


The old boys’ club of New York theater, for decades defined by the chummy relationships of producers and directors,
 is changing with the rise of female directors who are in demand by veteran playwrights as well as hot young writers.

Curtain rises on crowd-funding

Small theaters' ability to raise money on Indiegogo and Kickstarter
may mean edgier shows find an audience and a stage.
