Our 20th Anniversary Season Has Arrived!

New Millennium Theatre Company is excited to announce:

A Very Bardy Birthday: NMTC’S 20th Anniversary Shakesplosion!

We have cooked up some exciting Shakespeare parodies to celebrate 20 awesome years of New Millennium madness. Come party with us!

 

This autumn we are kicking off the season with….

“The Tragedy of He-Manlet, Prince of Eternia.”

Written by Adam “Roz” Rosowicz and directed by Ali Keirn!

Something’s rotten in the state of Eternia. The king is dead, and it’s up to Prince Adam to seek justice or lose the figure of action! It’s Shakespeare meets Saturday morning in a brand new iambic pentameter adventure that begs the question; “To He, or not to He?”

 

Later in the autumn we’re going to be doing a fundraiser featuring a performance of…

“DEADPOOL ANDRONICUS”

Written by Alex B. Reynolds

A one-night-only performance of the classic Shakespeare tale of murder and revenge as told by everyone’s favorite Merc with a Mouth (and resident expert on murder and revenge): Deadpool. Daniel Day-Lewis may be retiring, but There Will Be Blood.

 

Wrapping up our 20th season will be…

“Romeo & Juliet & Dungeons & Dragons”

Written by Sam Long

They say if you put typewriters in a room full of monkeys, then eventually they’d write some Shakespeare. We’re going with the assumption that this could happen just as easily with a room full of kids playing some D&D. Our brave, young adventurers find their friendships tested as often as their luck of the dice. Owlbears and odes of love abound in this tale the shines a light on the magic within us all.

 

In addition to this action-packed season, we are happy to announce that WE ARE MOVING! All of our 20th Anniversary productions will be performed at Stage 773 at 1225 W Belmont.

Keep your eyes on our site and our Facebook page so you can stay up to date on all the details for A Very Bardy Birthday: NMTC’S 20th Anniversary Shakesplosion!

Hank Cast

 

The Incredible Hank Incredible Staged Reading – January 11th!

Hank Graphic

 

Join New Millennium Theatre Company as we read through our latest script in development through our Script Incubator series: The Incredible Hank.

Hank is not special. He’s not sociable. He has a boring job, a boring life, and he likes it that way. But he’s thrown into the exciting world of superheroes and supervillains when his office becomes the staging ground for an evil plot that puts the entire country in jeopardy. Faced with famous heroes, powerful villains, ruthless cops, and the hounding press, Hank reluctantly finds himself in the fight of his life – to stay normal.

The reading will take place at Black Rock Bar (3614 N. Damen Ave.) on Monday night, January 11th. We will start at 7:30, so get there early to grab a bite to eat and a drink. We hope to see you there!

Time Out Chicago reviews “Crazy for Swayze”

“At first sight, people might cock their head at Michael Sherwin and say, “I’m not sure how much he really looks like Patrick Swayze.” Those people are fools. Patrick Swayze isn’t a look, he’s a state of mind. To play the Swayz one must have a special mix of charisma and coolness, a certain ga-gung deep within his heart, and…okay fine, an upper body full of rippling muscles never hurt.  Michael Sherwin has all this in spades in New Millennium Theatre Company’s production of Crazy For Swayze: A Swayzical.”

-certified Swayze expert Brooke Allen at Time Out Chicago
