The Mad Ones are a New York City-based company that creates ensemble-driven work through the ongoing collaboration of co-Artistic Directors Marc Bovino (writer/performer), Joe Curnutte (writer/performer), Stephanie Wright Thompson (writer/performer), Lila Neugebauer (writer/director), and Associate Director Michael Dalto (performer/writer/music director). The Mad Ones’ full-length plays include Miles for Mary (The Bushwick Starr, Playwrights Horizons), The Essential Straight and Narrow (New Ohio Theatre), Samuel & Alasdair: A Personal History of the Robot War (The Brick, Ars Nova, New Ohio Theatre), and The Tremendous Tremendous (The Brick), as well as the upcoming Mrs. Murray’s Menagerie (Ars Nova at Greenwich House). The Mad Ones have received multiple Drama Desk and Lucille Lortel Nominations and multiple New York Innovative Theatre Awards. The Mad Ones have been company-in-residence at Ars Nova and were the inaugural recipients of the Archive Residency through New Ohio Theatre/IRT.
“Collectively creating work requires extraordinary time, patience, and resources. Residency 5’s commitment to supporting a body of work will equip us to take meaningful artistic risks with unprecedented courage, galvanizing the next chapter of our collaboration. We are wildly honored to be welcomed into the company of Signature’s playwrights.”
