9/11 Collection on Indie Theater Now featuring The Americans

Indie Theater Now is a website which allows theater lovers access to the best plays of the New York City Indie Theater scene over the past decade or so. It launched just last month, and now has expanded with the 9/11 Collection, a collection of plays written on that theme, to commemorate the 10 year anniversary.

You can check out the entire collection here. Among the playwrights represented are Julia Lee Barclay, Leslie Bramm, Richard Hinojosa, Kelly McAllister. It also includes my play The Americans.

I'd love to know if you're using Indie Theater Now, and how it's working for you. If not, why not?

If I had an ereader, I'd probably use it, but I don't. I will get one when they pry it into my cold, dead hands...and even then, I'll only use it to read things that aren't available in print.

(That said,, I consider the possibility of getting one solely to read stuff that isn't available in print, like this or the stuff from Cheeky Frawg.

Or an iPad, when we finally get around to getting more books-as-apps.)

@Seth: You don't need an ereader to use Indie Theater Now; it has a Flash-based proprietary reader that you use on your desktop, laptop, or notebook computer. So there's no need to buy a special device.

I know that, Martin, but I'm not big on reading large amounts of text on my computer screen--it hurts my eyes. (Probably because I spend so much time looking at it anyway.)

Thanks for the suggestion, though.
