We are thrilled to announce the fourth play to be published in our second issue, “The Bus,” by internationally acclaimed playwright and filmmaker James Lantz. “The Bus” was produced Off-Broadway at 59E59 Theaters, and has also had productions all over the world in places such as London, Capetown, and San Francisco. As an award-winning filmmaker, Lantz has produced, written, and directed over 200 commercial films, videos, and live events for clients such as American Express, American Airlines, Amtrak, Alamo Rental Cars, Mobil Oil, and The Brooklyn Museum of Art. As a screenwriter, James has received recognition from numerous film festivals; his screenplay for “Hide Fox” won awards at eight national film festivals. James is currently working on a screenplay, a stage play, and two documentary feature films including “A Defiant Dude,” which was funded by over 2000 backers on Kickstarter.com. Prior to pursuing film and theatre, James taught high school in a small town in rural Virginia, where he was named “Teacher of the Year” by the student body. Congratulations, James!
