Every summer, JAW: A Playwrights Festival takes over The Armory as we invite four (or sometimes five!) playwrights to workshop brand spanking new work. During the 2016 festival, we invited Blitzen Trapper to workshop their new show. The band, along with two actors, two directors, a stage manager and a technical team, experimented with sonic storytelling and explored the world of Wild and Reckless for its world premiere March 17, 2017.
