The Mad Ones

Founded in 2009, The Mad Ones are a New York City-based company dedicated to creating visceral, ensemble-driven, highly detailed theatrical experiences that examine and illuminate American nostalgia. We devise plays through the ongoing collaboration of performers/writers, designers, and director, with each artist playing an essential role in a piece’s creation from the inception. Our productions appropriate popular American genres, playfully re-imagine world history, and incorporate live music in service of a delicately woven, wholly articulated, character-driven universe. The Mad Ones are Co-Artistic Directors Marc Bovino (performer/writer), Joe Curnutte (performer/writer), Lila Neugebauer (director/writer), Stephanie Wright Thompson (performer/writer); Company Members Michael Dalto (performer/music director/marketing director), Ásta Bennie Hostetter (costume designer), Mike Inwood (lighting designer), Laura Jellinek (set designer), Sarah Lunnie (dramaturg), and Stowe Nelson (sound designer). The Mad Ones are currently the Company-in-Residence at Ars Nova.
