John Chatterton's series of theatre festivals are rapidly becoming a fixture in the New York Theatre scene, with offerings year round and an ecclectic array of quality stage works from artists from across the country and the globe. His monthly short play labs create unlimited opportunities for young artists as well as theatergoers; the venerable Midtown International Theatre Festival is a New York tradition; and the now-five-year-old MIDWINTER MADNESS SHORT PLAY FESTIVAL welcomes the new year with a gaggle of brilliant bits under an hour.
