Dot Dot Productions Created by sisters Jean Hanff Korelitz and Nina Korelitz Matza, Dot Dot Productions was originally formed to bring THE DEAD, 1904 to life in 2016 in New York City. Now in our third year, we are excited to be reviving THE DEAD, 1904 for winter 2018. Dot Dot also has several new theatrical concepts in development. Jean Hanff Korelitz is the author of six novels, including ADMISSION (adapted as a 2013 film with Tina Fey, Paul Rudd and Lily Tomlin), YOU SHOULD HAVE KNOWN (coming to HBO in a production written by David E. Kelley and starring Nicole Kidman, Hugh Grant and Donald Sutherland and directed by Susanne Bier) and THE DEVIL AND WEBSTER. Nina Korelitz Matza has an MBA in marketing and spent many years doing international marketing in the beauty business before creating and marketing her own products. She is on the board of Ars Nova and the advisory Council of The New Victory Theater.
The Irish Repertory Theatre stages the works of Irish and Irish-American classic and contemporary playwrights, encourages the development of new works focused on the Irish and Irish-American experience, and produces the works of other cultures interpreted through the lens of an Irish sensibility. Irish Rep has celebrated the very best in Irish theatre Off-Broadway for twenty-six years, from the masters such as Brien Friel, Eugene O'Neill, George Bernard Shaw, Dylan Thomas, and Conor McPherson to the new generation of Irish and Irish-American writers who are transforming the stage.
Located in a beautiful turn of the century mansion on Manhattan's Upper East Side, The American Irish Historical Society has been a center of Irish culture and knowledge in continuous operation since 1897. The Society is host to cultural events such as concerts, plays, readings, lectures, exhibitions, and films.
Known for its dedication to seasonal ingredients, innovative culinary presentations and exceptional service, Great Performances has been a dynamic presence on New York City’s cultural landscape since its 1979 roots as a part-time staffing agency for women in the arts. Today it counts a number of the city's most high-profile cultural institutions as clients, including Jazz at Lincoln Center, Asia Society Museum, Brooklyn Academy of Music and Brooklyn Museum. For the audiences of THE DEAD 1904, Great Performances will prepare an interpretation of the dinner so lyrically described by James Joyce in “The Dead.” It will be a memorable one-of-a-kind meal incorporating ingredients from Great Performances’ organic Katchkie Farm in Kinderhook, NY, where the company has been engaged in sustainable agricultural practices since 2007.
