Remy Bumppo Theatre Company presents intellectually and emotionally inspiring plays that use the power and pleasure of language to thrill the ear, stir the heart, feed the mind, and spark a conversation.
History and Name:
The company was founded in 1996 as Remy Bumppo Productions by Chicago-born Artistic Director James Bohnen and two producers from Colorado, Carol Loewenstern and John Stoddard. The absurdly named theatrical venture was named for Lowenstern's cat (named after Remy Martin cognac) and Bohnen's black Labrador (named for Natty Bumppo, the protagonist of James Fenimore Cooper's Leatherstocking Tales).
