Festival Description

Comics are sometimes called “sequential art” – stories that unfold across time over the course of multiple images. This definition also applies to the art of theater – and with so much in common, it makes sense that the two should team up. After a successful first installment in 2011, the Comic Book Theater Festival is coming back to The Brick for “Issue #2” in June 2014. Get ready for a new crop of shows that explore the intersection of the panel and the stage, the live and the drawn, the ink and the actor. The call for submissions will be open until January 15 – both long-form and short-form pieces will be considered.

Festival Dates June 6 - 29, 2014

Festival Story:

THE BRICK was founded in 2002 by Robert Honeywell and Michael Gardner. Formerly an auto-body shop, a yoga center, and various storage spaces, this brick-walled garage in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, was completely refurbished as a state-of-the-art performance space. Since then, The Brick has launched, produced and presented hundreds of world-premiere stage works from New York emerging artists and theater-makers from around the globe. The theater company is a proud member of New York’s burgeoning Indie Theater community and informal home to an ever-expanding family of artists and avid theatergoers. The Brick received a 2009 New York Innovative Theatre Foundation Caffé Cino Fellowship Award for being “an Off-Off Broadway theatre company that consistently produces outstanding work.”
