‘Washington Square on Fifteenth Street’

The Anthroposophical Society of New York City, no stranger to the arts, offers a dramatic performance at its meeting space later this month. From the publicity:

Washington Square, by Henry James
Performed by The Actors’ Ensemble:
Bethany Caputo, Fern Sloan,
Chris Smith, and Ted Pugh

February 21 to 23
7:30 p.m.
$20 per person

The Actors’ Ensemble presents Washington Square, Henry James’ tragic story of a woman’s relationship with her father and a possible fortune hunter. Faithful to James’ original text, four actors narrate the story and play all of the characters in this 19th century masterpiece. In development since 2011, it comes to New York City after an initial run in Spencertown, New York.

The Actors’ Ensemble: Founded in 1985 in New York City by a group of professional actors (and members of Anthroposophy NYC) inspired by acting techniques taught by Michael Chekhov. TAE has created and performed theater productions across the United States and in Europe, developed a two-year college-level acting program through Sunbridge College and, in March 2015, will open an acting school—the Michael Chekhov School, to be located at Solaris, 360 Warren Street, in Hudson, New York.

Anthroposophy NYC is located at 138 West 15th Street in Manhattan.
