Formerly named the Know Theatre Tribe, this company traces its roots to the fall of 1997, when founder Jay B. Kalagayan brought together a group of seven actors to perform in a local bookstore. In 2003, the company gained national attention for its award-winning production of Terrence McNally’s Corpus Christi, which drew protests from religious groups, including a letter writing campaign in which more than 20,000 postcards were mailed to the theatre.
In 2006, the company changed its name to signify that its nomadic “tribe” days were over. Now ensconced in a permanent home at 1120 Jackson Street, Know Theatre has recently presented such plays as Angels in America (both parts), The Pillowman, andTopdog/Underdog, as well as musicals ranging from Reefer Madness to Thrill Me.
