I want to offer super-cheap ($10 to free) Shakespeare tickets to educators and their students in the NYC area. I'm interested in contacting both high school and college teachers.

Dear NYC-Hive: Visiting in Feb and would like to find listings of theatres whose offerings are like Lucille Lortel Theater in the Village. Would prefer Manhattan locations (over other boroughs). They just did "Volpone" and are doing "She Stoops to Conquer" soon. But they also do new works as well. What are similar theaters? And bonus points if you can give me a link to calendar/listings.

A friend and I are producing and directing a biweekly variety-type theater show. We've run our own weekly show much like this with our own creative crew for a number of months, so the production angle is quite familiar, but we need fresh writing blood from outside our social circle. We'd like to open our submissions to playwrights, sketch writers, monologists, and the like, but it's an awfully big city. What are the best ways to find such people willing to submit writing, especially in NYC? Craigslist leaps out as the obvious choice, as does flyering up colleges, but there must be other options as well. [more inside]
