This prolific company, run since 1993 by the inexhaustible Beata Pilch, has offered a flurry of prime-time, late-night and off-night productions ranging from Dario Fo and Franca Rame's feminist comedy "Orgasmo Adulto Escapes From the Zoo" to Edna St. Vincent Millay's "Aria Da Capo" to the brilliant, naturalistic "The Boys of Peggy August Club." They produce an astounding 12 shows a year, most of them daunting experimental fare like the almost incomprehensible "Feverdream Cocktail." It's a testament, if not a tribute, to their youth and a challenge to their audiences.
