19 Dec 2013
Polk & Company, the Broadway public relations company founded in early 2013 by press agent Matt Polk, will take on such clients as Wicked and Second Stage Theatre, as well as the upcoming Broadway productions of Rocky, If/Then and The Velocity of Autumn.
Press agents from the soon-to-close Hartman Group, including Tom D'Ambrosio, Wayne Wolfe, Frances White and Colgan McNeil, whose accounts include the aforementioned productions, will join the Polk & Co. team as of Jan. 6, 2014.
In early December, Hartman Group founder Michael Hartman announced that the press agency he founded in 2009 would cease operation Jan. 5.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
