Who we are
The Midtown International Theatre Festival (MITF) is the brainchild of John Chatterton, publisher and editor of OOBR ("the off-off-broadway review"). Chatterton started the MITF as a way to present the finest Off-Off-Broadway talent in convenience, comfort, and safety. For eleven seasons, oobr has been passing judgment on Off-Off-Broadway theatre; now, as he says, he is putting his money where his mouth is.

In addition to Chatterton, executive producer and artistic director, MITF's management team comprises Emily Pedigo, production manager; Judd Hollander of Bunch of People Productions, press and publicity; a yet-to-be-named co-artistic director international plays); Glory Sims Bowen, co-artistic director (non-musical plays); and Cheryl King, co-artistic director (solo plays). Scripts are selected by the artistic directors in consultation with the other members of the management team.
