  • The Whore of Sheridan Square by Michael Baron The series began in 2000 and is now seven books old. Denton—a former full time accountant from the Washington, D.C. area, who halted a successful career with the Marriott Hotel chain to cover theatre non stop—hatched the idea after he realized that many of the small, black box plays he saw, and admired, would likely never see the light of day again. What to do? Why, publish them of course, with the hope that other theatres would produce the work. Thus, an independent theatre imprint was born.


    The book will retail $17 and will be available at bookstores and online at and barnes&  For more information contact
