A Brief History
Reno Productions is a Manhattan-based independent production company and has produced such theatrical hits as the long-running phenomenon Hedwig and the Angry Inch, John Leguizamo's Spic-O-Rama and Mambo Mouth, and the highly-acclaimed Off-Broadway success Trumbo, starring a rotating cast including Paul Newman, Ed Harris, Chris Cooper, Tim Robbins and Nathan Lane.
After establishing a presence within the theatre community, Reno expanded to include a slate of feature films. The documentary adaptation of Trumbo, about Academy Award-winning, blacklisted screenwriter Dalton Trumbo, was an official selection of the 2007 Toronto International Film Festival and won the National Board of Review Freedom of Expression Award. Boys of Summer, another documentary produced in association with Reno, about the Little League World Champions from the Caribbean island of Curaço, enjoyed a co-release with Tribeca Film and ESPN in 2011.
Reno produced the 2011 Tribeca Film Festival selection and Tribeca Film release The Bleeding House, starring Alexandra Chando and Patrick Breen, directed and written by graphic novelist Philip Gelatt, as well as Certainty, the feature film by Mike O'Malley, directed by Peter Askin and starring Adelaide Clemens, Bobby Moynihan, Tammy Blanchard and Valerie Harper, which opened the 2011 Boston Film Festival.
Reno owns and operates the Westside Theatre, which has been home to Terrence McNally's Frankie and Johnny in the Claire de Lune, Eve Ensler's The Vagina Monologues, David Mamet's Cryptogram, the decade-long hit I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change and Nora Ephron's Love, Loss and What I Wore.
