The Outrageous Fortune Company, a Queens-based regional theatre company, was founded in 1993 by Ronald B. Hellman, a Douglaston attorney and long-time local theatre actor. Dedicated to producing contemporary plays of significance, the company has presented 50 plays to date.
Outrageous Fortune's 17th season was its last at Queens Theatre in the Park. The season opened in November 2009 with Dead Man’s Cell Phone, by Sarah Ruhl, followed by Spalding Gray: Stories Left to Tell, conceived by Kathleen Russo, and The Blue Room, adapted by David Hare.
Top actors and directors contribute their talents to the company, attracted by the company’s professional reputation and its outstanding play selection. The plays are often fresh from Off-Broadway, as well as Broadway itself, have earned good reviews and long runs, but are seldom available this side of the East River.
Producer Hellman dedicates the company to the memory of his late parents, Bill and Leonore Hellman, who were avid theatregoers. A life-long Queens resident, Hellman is a graduate of Newtown High School, Columbia College and Columbia Law School. He is married to the artist Lois Hellman, and has a daughter and son who live and work in Manhattan.
