With equal footing in theater and film, Firefly has been telling compelling stories for more than 20 years.
Founded in 1996 by actor and producer Steven Klein, Firefly first focused solely on theater, and its productions have won dozens of awards for shows in Boston, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Belfast, Off-West End London, and Off-Broadway.
With a belief that films could be made with the same cross-disciplinary collaboration typically found in theater, Steven partnered with Oscar-winning producer Bruce Cohen to found a film collective, making 35 digital shorts from 2001 – 2005. The success of this project led to the expansion of the company into Firefly Theater & Films, which has since screened award-winning films at dozens of festivals internationally.
Firefly’s founder, Steven Klein, also speaks and writes often about the uncommon actor-producer path, including on his blog, in an essay in Back Stage West, and on the Up Next Podcast, available on iTunes. He also spoke about the storytelling challenges unique to documentary film at SXSW V2V.
