3S Theatre Collective is a new tri-state-based non-profit production company that has three goals: 3STC is "committed to bridging the gap between the current generation and the next generation of theatre artists by fostering new talent from all aspects of the art. . . to bring spectacular entertainment to the areas surrounding Manhattan. . . [and] to not doing anything 'by the book.' [The company] intends to do everything [it] can to make a splash, turn heads and raise eyebrows."

Future plans for 3STC include the mounting of an original musical in Connecticut; a full-scale production of Hedwig and the Angry Inch in Jersey City; and three large-scale benefits (in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut) for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS and 3STC.

The Players Theatre is located in Manhattan at 115 MacDougal Street. For tickets, priced $20, $35 and $70 (VIP seats), e-mail marc@3stc.com beginning Friday, April 25.
