There will only be two scheduled emails a month. The goal here is to make finding the work EASY on all of us, not burying the list with spam.
This will be a managed list with the communications coming to and from firstname.lastname@example.org an email account established for this venture.
Feel free to send a tip regarding an immersive/interactive/pervasive/experimental theatre experience, arty LARP event, or anything that feels right to you to that address. On the second and fourth Tuesdays of each month I will collect what has been sent, edit the contents into an easy digest, and release the email the next day.
If you would like to be on the list email email@example.com with the message "Add Me" in either the subject or the body of the message. The first notice will be sent on Jan 15th, 2014.
Best, Noah J. Nelson

In the last 14 years, over 100 acclaimed artists have given their time to the Lab including Jason Alexander, Julie Arenal, Luis Alfaro, Paris Barclay, Cirque Berzerk, Kay Cole, Gordon Davidson, George Furth, Ming Cho Lee, Marc Masterson, Janet Miller, Randy Newman, Vincent Paterson, Carey Perloff, Stephen Wadsworth and Charlayne Woodard.
