Moving Parts Theater, Inc. is a Manhattan-based nonprofit organization founded in 2000 and dedicated to the incorporation of performing, literary and visual art. Founded by seasoned performer and director Charles Loffredo, the company counts among its ranks an ever-growing list of actors, singers, dancers, writers, artists, photographers, musicians, composers, choreographers, puppeteers and designers: all collaborating to create productions which seek to expand the boundaries of traditional theater by combining several different genres into one unique theatrical event.
Since its inception the company has produced four plays: Broken Boughs (February 2002 - Blue Heron Arts Center), Lovers and Other Stranglers (June 2004 - Gene Frankel Theatre), Edie in LEGS! (May/June 2005 - Gene Frankel Theatre) andRites of Privacy (August/September 2007 - Urban Stages Theater). The company also presented the fundraising event Deliciously Wicked Fun in October 2001 at the Blue Heron Arts Center, featuring Academy Award winning actress Kim Hunter. Moving Parts Theater is currently planning a revival of Rites of Privacy in the NY International Fringe Festival this summer, direct from its acclaimed London premiere in January 2010.
