News   Third Julia Jordan Play of the Season, Tatjana in Color, Begins in NYC, Oct. 25
 
The Culture Project has announced the third Julia Jordan work this season with Tatjana in Color. The New York premiere is set to run at the company's 45 Bleecker Street space, beginning Oct. 25 and opening Oct. 30 for an open-ended engagement.

Will Pomerantz directs this drama by the prolific up-and comer who has already seen her St. Scarlet play at The Ontological and Summer of the Swans at the Lucille Lortel earlier in the year. Her play Boy opens at Primary Stages in April 2004. Tatjana in Color is about an Austrian Expressionist painter who is accused of raping the twelve year-old daughter of a well-respected retired naval officer — the subject of several of his nude paintings. The story is loosely based on a true story.

The play won the Francesca Primus Prize and was published in the anthology "Women Playwrights, The Best Plays of 1997." Jordan was also a Susan Smith Blackburn Award finalist for her play Boy. Other works include the librettos for The Mice (with Neil Benjamin and Batboy's Larry O'Keefe) — which appeared as part of Prince Music Theatre's production of 3hree — and Sarah Plain and Tall with the same songwriting team.

Tickets to Tatjana In Color at The Culture Project, 45 Bleecker Street are available by calling (212) 307-4100. For more information, visit www.45bleecker.com.
