August is well known for theatre festivals, both in New York and Edinburgh — but some year round companies are hard at work as well.
Please try to see at Playwrights Horizons, “A Delicate Ship” by the super- talented Anna Ziegler. If you missed her terrific “Photograph 51” at EST (another Alfred P. Sloan commission) you have a chance to see it this fall, with Nicole Kidman starring as Rosalind Franklin– but you’ll have to jet over to London to do so!

Another treat is bound to be “A New Morality,” a comedy from 1920 by Harold Chapin, at the ever-unearthing, ever- excellent Mint Theatre Company.
BUY TICKETS NOW for the most astonishing production of “A View From the Bridge” you’ll ever see! This comes from the Young Vic, directed by Ivo van Hove, and begins at the Lyceum Theatre in October — but don’t wait!
FAIR WARNING: another British import you don’t want to miss is “King Charles III” at the Music Box. You’ll be the star when it will surely be sold out — and you’ll have seats!
Off to Edinburgh, now. I’ll let you now what theatrical gems I’ve found in the next letter. Please tell me what I’ve missed here!
