Lead Artist: 600 HIGHWAYMEN is an award-winning theater company under the artistic direction of Abigail Browde and Michael Silverstone, dedicated to creating a body of original, immersive productions that re-imagine the theatrical experience for an audience. By integrating creative methods ranging from conventional to peculiar, and developing ground-breaking collaborations with communities, businesses, and non-traditional performance sites, 600 HIGHWAYMEN engineer electric performances that bind spectator and performer in an inimitable and unparalleled live encounter. 600 HIGHWAYMEN’s performances have been awarded distinctions and critics picks in the Village Voice, Flavorpill, and Time Out New York. Their inaugural work, This Time Tomorrow, staged in a Brooklyn church basement, was named “Best Of 2010” by L Magazine, and the company’s latest production, This Great Country, was created in residency with Fusebox Festival in Austin. Silverstone and Browde have received residencies and fellowships from Brooklyn Arts Exchange, the Drama League, and Soho Rep Writer/Director Lab, and individually, have directed works in a spectrum of venues– including Williamstown Theater Festival, New York state maximum security prisons, Chicago’s Single File Festival, and state parks and public gardens. They have received support from the Puffin Foundation and the Foundation for Contemporary Arts.
