Why Indie Theatre?: Heather Curran

 In celebration of Indie Theatre Week (July 23 - August 1, 2011),
we asked members of the OOB community to answer this question,
"Why Indie Theatre?"

Freedom!  The Gallery Players holds a unique position in the Indie theater world.  Having a home where we audition, rehearse, build and perform allows us the freedom to program an ambitious season of revivials and new works.  I love hearing from people "how are they going to pull that off?" about The Who's Tommy or Take Me Out or many of other shows in our season.  Looking forward to our 45th season starting this September.

Heather Siobhan Curran is the Artistic Director of The Gallery Players. At TGP she has directed Deathtrap, The Weir, Side Man, The Marriage of Bette and Boo, Bus Stop, The Crucible and most recently Dancing at Lughnasa. She is also a producer, helming such productions as Holiday, Cloud 9, Once on this Island, The Wild Party and Like You Like It (2009 IT award, outstanding musical production) and Reefer Madness .  She has worked at Rochester Children’s Theatre, Nazareth College, JCC Centerstage, Blackfriars Theater, Target Margin, Expanded Arts and in Europe. She also occasionally acts and is a member of the League of Professional Theatre Women.
