4/8/03: Talented Performer Takes On Two Roles with a Smile
"If there is a greater challenge to an actor than playing Shakespeare, it’s the challenge of playing two very different Shakespearean roles — one tragic, one comic — in the space of 24 hours."

2/6/03: The NYC Debut of Romeo & Juliet
"Some companies, when transferring a show to Broadway, would attempt to fill the title roles with big-name actors to boost sales. We're just not that kind of company."

2/18/02: Tiny Ninjas Return to Charleston

Tiny Ninja Theater's Macbeth Closing December 26

Macbeth Begins Open-Ended Run
"When The Present Company offered to extend the run again, we leapt at the opportunity, because where else in New York City can you find a small, dank, drafty space like this one?"

Macbeth Extended Through October 14th
"There is no truth whatsoever to the rumor that David Hasselhoff will be replacing Mr. Smile as Macbeth in this new run."

Macbeth Extended Through September 30th
"We're very pleased to be able to continue the show, especially since we were worried for a while that Mr. Smile would have to return to L.A. to work on a sitcom."

October 6, 2000: Tiny Ninja Theater presents MACBETH, "the hit of this year’s Fringe," (newyork.citysearch.com) is pleased to announce that it will yet again be extending its run at The Present Company Artspace.

"I am pleased to announce," said director Dov Weinstein, "that we will yet again be extending our run at The Present Artspace."

After a month of shows which followed its award-winning sold-out premiere at the New York International Fringe Festival, Tiny Ninja Theater has been invited to remain in the cramped, dimly lit, poorly-heated space provided by The Present Company. "When The Present Company offered to extend the run again, we leapt at the opportunity," said co-producer Jonathan Van Gieson, "because where else in New York City can you find a small, dank, drafty space like this one? Other than Dov’s apartment, of course. But that’s another story. Is this live?"

In an effort to reach families, bartenders, and the unemployed, Tiny Ninja Theater presents MACBETH will be moving into the lucrative Sunday — Tuesday at 7pm slot with a Sunday matinee at 3pm.

John Clancy, Artistic Director of The Present Company, was thrilled to have the show continue in the Artspace. "We used to use that room to store garbage. Garbage. If we can milk a few bucks out of it by letting a bunch of suckers continue pay twelve dollars to see a grown man fiddle with some toys, so much the better."

Call today for tickets to the show that alliteration-happy reviewers have hailed as "a diminutive delight," (Next Magazine) "filled with wee wonders," (newyork.citysearch.com) and "a plasticine pleasure." (The Village Voice)
