Playwright Mac Rogers was invited by the editors of The Brooklyn Rail to expound upon any particular performance of his choosing happening throughout the month of October. For some ungodly reason, he picked The Pumpkin Pie Show.
I'd just like to take this opportunity to say… God bless Mac Rogers.
He has written probably one of the most incisive, heartfelt accounts of The Pumpkin Pie Show ever. In our show's decade-plus run, we've had the good fortune of getting some great press, but it's an article like this, where the author has the journalistic real estate to really get into the nitty gritty of our performances, that feels like a benchmark for us and the work we've done.
"[The Pumpkin Pie Show] has become one of downtown New York theater’s best-kept secrets—a cult success that loyal fans eagerly await every Halloween."—The Brooklyn Rail
Mac makes us sound better than we truly are. I aspire to be as good as the show he's writing about. Please, as a favor to me, read this article and spread it around. It's solid writing and it's an absolute honor to be the subject of such writing. And come see the Pumpkin Pie Show for the love of all that is unholy!

““birdfeeder” is a darkly poetic monologue... Chapman's prose is haunting, beautifully written, poignant, and elegiac... I cannot spoil the plot of the monologue without ruining any element of surprise. I can tell you that it's about a love between two people that transcends the body and is truly moving and disturbing. ”
