Noah was a student at NYU at the time he wrote the following article. Gabriele and Nick had given a lecture to a class in which he was enrolled at Playwrights' Horizons in New York. When he expressed interest in working something up on the history of Thieves, we opened up our file cabinets to him. The Making of Thieves Theatre's Last Stand would continue for another couple years after Noah gave us his article with the following statement dated 5/31/91:
The Making of Thieves Theatre's Last Stand is a work in progress. Any documentation or critique at this point is incomplete. The artists themselves do not know where it is going or where it will end. At this point the project relies on a clear awareness of what is happening as opposed to a strong view of what should happen. When a stick is jammed into an anthill, the ants scurry around and attempt to ascertain what has just occurred. Over the last six months Thieves Theatre has put the stick in the anthill. The ants are still scurrying.
When we decided to create our webpage, we found a copy of this article and thought it best described to those interested the history and impetus behind Thieves Theatre.
