Raw Space, 529 W. 42nd St.
The Midtown International Theater Festival (MITF) is the brainchild of John Chatterton, publisher and editor of oobr ("the off-off-broadway review"). Chatterton started the MITF as a way to present the finest Off-Off-Broadway talent in convenience and comfort. For eight years, oobr has been passing judgment on Off-Off-Broadway theatre; now, as he says, he is putting his money where his mouth is.
In addition to Chatterton, executive producer and artistic director, MITF's management team comprises Frank Calo of Spotlight On Productions, managing producer; Carolyn Cubit-Tsutsui, production manager; Judd Hollander of Bunch of People Productions, press and publicity; and Hideaki Tsutsui, lighting designer. Tickets will be sold through Ticket Central.
The Festival is contained in two theatres at Raw Space, at 529 W. 42nd St., a short and pleasant walk from Times Square. Performance dates are July 8 through Aug. 4.
