Van Cougar is proud to present its third production, TUBE, premiering at the Incubator Arts Center (NY, NY) from November 30 - December 16, 2012.
Tube is an exploration of human connection through the theatrical convergence of YouTube, one of the grittiest, most pervasive forms of entertainment, and stories shared face-to-face, which are increasingly a rarity in this era where we type and text more than we talk.
Your support will enable us to pay our actors and designers and build our set.
All donors will receive a thank you letter and their name listed in our program (optional - let us know if you'd like to be anonymous).
Thanks for listening,
Mark Sitko, Erica Rippy, Paul Alexander

About Rocky Philly:
“Van Cougar's unprepossessing upstart of a show proceeds to pummel our expectations, drawing from a seemingly inexhaustible well of craft, cleverness, and Sweet Science.” – Village Voice
About Gunga Din:
“Whether you prefer your war stories low key or over the top, hesitant or harrowing, “Gonna See a Movie Called Gunga Din” has you covered.” – New York Times
“This dense and wonderful evening of theater has a stellar cast and remarkable moments, a richness of theatricality that attests strongly to that extensive talent that put it together.” – NYTheater.com
“Some of the most solid theater available.” – NYTheater.com
“Conceived and directed by Mark Sitko, Gunga Dinis a darkly witty collage of American war sagas, mixing cherished fictions with gruesome truths.” – Village Voice
“Like the Rudyard Kipling poem of its title, Gunga Din finds understanding and communion where conventionally—and in pop culture—there is only conflict.” – L Magazine
