Smugbug Productions chooses projects that are challenging, stimulating, and reinvent audience engagement.
We engage with work on all levels of creation and presentation including stage direction, production management, producing, general management, and consulting. Our work includes projects in theater, dance, public art, video, and community engagement. Our experience spans from shoe-string to multi-million dollar budgets.
What we're working on right now:
Shake & Bake: Love's Labour's Lost is coming back to New York City later this year, for a sit-down run in Manhattan. Stay tuned, details will be available very soon!
The Eleventh Hour! a new musical rock comedy about the end of the world in New Brunswick, NJ. Book, music, and lyrics by David Seamon, directed by Annie Rutherford Lutz. Originally commissioned by coLAB Arts, the musical is being presented at Town Stages in NYC starting May 11, 2018.
A massive public art installation at the former Gerdau Ameristeel site in Perth Amboy, NJ. Materials for the sculptures are being salvaged from the equipment and building as they are torn down to make way for new commercial development and green space.
