Winter Intersession

Dialogue with Three Chords is on break until January 26th, 2012 when we will return with brand new plays (from Stephen as well other playwrights), music, poetry, and more.

We at D3C would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you who came out to support new theatre, and we hope to see you next year.

D3C exists as a monthly event because of the generosity of Donal Dennehy, the Dennehy family, and Jennifer and Greg Skura. They have been fantastic hosts and inspirations.

Our patrons knew that these were happening because of the tireless devotion of our PR Person, Edie Nugent.

D3C, as a concept, was influenced by the New York theatre movement of the 60’s, and the New York Punk Rock scene of the 70’s. La MaMa and Max’s Kansas City. Sam Shepard and Richard Hell. Growing up in Brooklyn, we idolized and romanticized that time, when actors mixed with artists, mixed with musicians, mixed with poets. We spent our youth hoping to join a scene, and as adults, we figured we’d start our own, throw wide the doors, and invite everyone down to the basement to join in. We were Hardcore kids; we know a thing or two about the power of a gang chorus.

Our postcards are flyers. Our programs are setlists.

As we start the holiday season, it’s hard not to get boldly sentimental. We at D3C are thankful for everyone who came out to support the kind of theatre that excites us; it's nice to know that we're not alone, and we're thankful for all the actors and musicians who contributed their time and passion to these plays: those we’ve worked with in the past and those we met during these four months.

We look forward to making you say unspeakable things in 2012.

We also look forward to getting even more actors, more writers, and more musicians involved next season.

While we’re away, Stephen will be working on new scripts, workshopping old ones, and blogging here about the process. He will also be soliciting short play scripts, so check back for announcements.

D3C may be dark for the next couple of months, but our friends won’t be, please go and support these brave, forward thinking companies and events:

Abraxas Stage Company

Monk Parrots

Barefoot Theatre Company

Look at the Fish Theatre

Glitterbox Burlesque

See you in the dead of Winter.

Dress in layers, because the basement gets toasty.
