Best New and Yummy Theater Troupe

CONTEMPORARY THEATER COMPANY

They joke about it. “Great Theater Since 2005” is their slogan. Yes, the CONTEMPORARY THEATER COMPANY are newcomers, but they are also up-and-comers. Princeton grads started it nearly five years ago as the Courthouse Theater Company, with Christopher Simpson serving as artistic director. He won a fellowship from his alma mater in 2009 to build the Wakefield-based theater company, which now offers theater classes. Last year these pages noted that their production of The Complete Works William Shakespeare (Abridged) demonstrated “that the bane of phys-ed majors can be more fun than a barrel of bodkins.” At the end of the year, their staging of the O. Henry short story classic The Gift of the Magi went well, partly because they’ve started presenting performances as dinner theater at the Midtown Café. | 401.228.5175 | thecontemporarytheater.com
