Mellamphy’s first initiative as artistic director will be to stage a deeply resonant, if truncated, edition of the European Month of Culture.  In events coordinated between Washington DC and New York starting on Europe Day, Sunday May 9, the mini festival will explore the theme “getting outside.” Four European plays, which were meant to be seen in readings last year, will now be performed in staged, site-specific mini-productions overseen by Mellamphy in a number of unique New York City locations.
