I was so happy to see that the NY Times has the CATF in their Summer Theatre Season listing.

Contemporary American Theater Festival

I didn’t remember seeing CATF last year, but this year, when the NY Times ran it’s annual listing of major theater sites across the country, there was the Contemporary American Theater Festival, the only listing under West Virginia in Summer Stages.

Looks like our local festival, now entering its 21st year, is being recognized in the major listings. Congratulations to Ed Herendeen and staff.

  1. This is the first time we’ve been able to get CATF listed in that NY Times section, although we think it should have been before now. The president of the CATF board, Jenny Allen, did a wonderful job of staying after the Times to get it listed this year.
