Filigree Theatre is the latest addition to Austin’s mushrooming arts community. Led by
Elizabeth V. Newman and
Stephanie Moore, it will hit the ground right away with a gala fundraiser on Thursday, Sept. 14 at
Back in the 1990s, Austin launched a new arts group every other week. Despite the difficulties with finding suitable and affordable
space to play, that trend seems to have returned.
This particular company hopes to bridge the arts communities in Los Angeles and Austin. While in its gestation, Filigree presented
a well-received version of
Daniel Arnold and
Medina Hahn‘s "Any Night" in both cities.
Filigree’s first season starts off officially with
Harold Pinter‘s reverse-action "Betrayal," starring
Emily Rankin and
J. Kevin Smith. It runs Sept. 28-Oct. 8 at the
Santa Cruz Center.
The season continues with
Anna Ziegler‘s "A Delicate Ship" (Feb. 15-25) and
Stephanie Moore‘s "Trio" (April 26-May 6).
