The same appeal found in miniatures– think dollhouse or architect’s models– applies in literary form. Think haiku or the one-act play, or Hemingway’s famous 6-word story.
The Summer Shorts, Series A and B, at 59 Theaters, magnify the allure. Each part offers up 3 extremely compact plays by the likes of Neil LaBute (a periennel contributor), Vickie Ramirez and Matthew Lopez. Produced by JJ Kandel, the six playlets are in rotating repertory through August 29th. Series B of the Summer Shorts features playwrights Robert O’Hara, Stella Fawn Ragsdale and Lucy Thurber.
