Celebrating the life and art of Václav Havel

From the Havel Festival website:

Havel_2In honor of Václav Havel’s 70th birthday and his concurrent residency at Columbia University, Untitled Theater Company #61 and other artists and companies from New York and around the country have come together to present, for the first time anywhere, the complete plays of Václav Havel.

With one world premiere, five English language premieres and five other new translations, this is a must-see event for fans of Havel, political theater, absurdist theater, or simply theater in general.

We’re mounting sixteen fully-staged productions in Manhattan and Brooklyn, as well as readings, panels, talkbacks, and a variety of other events honoring Vaclav Havel’s political and artistic career. Untitled Theater Company #61 loves to not only present plays but also be inspired by ideas. Come experience this once in a lifetime opportunity to experience all of Havel’s comic masterpieces and to learn about an important artist and world leader in depth.
