American Thymele Theatre, founded by producing artistic director and accomplished character actor Stephen Diacrussi, was created to promote Hellenic culture in America. It has produced a wide variety of works including some in their original 19thcentury Greek, as well as a popular comedy festival and a 50th anniversary revival of Maxwell Anderson’s Barefoot in Athens. In 2009, ATT’s production of Rhesus became the first outdoor play in its NYC Euripides Free Summer Festival Series. The Festival returned last year with an acclaimed production of Alcestis. The company’s approach to tragedy is traditional with classically stylized staging.
