The Fall, we had the opportunity to move to our new space on 45th St (Between 5th and 6th Ave.) and the new theatre is just wonderful. Bigger, clean,  centrally located and just a great performing space in the heart of Midtown manhattan.

Please check out all that we do here.

Manhattan Rep is a unique theatre for new work in New York City.  

We are committed to the creative artist and to the magic of creation.

How you can have your play produced in NEW YORK CITY!

So this is an idea that we have been kicking around for some time, but now that we have settled in to our new Theatre space on 45th Street, we are making  it possible for anyone with a good play, and for a nominal fee, to have their play produced at Manhattan Rep.  We supply the director, the cast, the rehearsal space, set and props, and we bring your  play to life in Midtown Manhattan where one can invite friends, family, producers and literary agents to come and see it.  And it doesn't cost an arm and a leg!

WE NOW HAVE SLOTS AVAILABLE JUNE THROUGH SEPTEMBER!


Every actor should have their own 1 person play.  A compelling, exciting  show that one can present again and again and again whenever one needs to connect with agents or casting directors, or simply whenever one needs to get up on the stage and share their craft.  

Having a well produced, simple, one person show should be in every actor's casting toolkit.

Here is an easy and exciting way to make this happen:
 
 Our Write, Rehearse and Perform Your Own Solo Show Play Production Program!



Working in the vacuum of a computer screen can prove daunting for one is often trapped within the box of their perceptions and beliefs. 

This “Playwriting Blog“ is designed to offer strategies and techniques for playwrights (and writers in general) "to get out of their heads" and write better, feel more motivated, get into that CREATIVITY ZONE, find more productive ways to complete a work, and to simply have more fun creating! 


(WorldWide: Via email and/or Skype, Facetime, or phone.)

Are you stuck on that play you are writing? Can't seem to finish it?

Needs some help.  

With Playwriting Mentoring, you will finish that play and it will be awesome!

“We loved our experience at MRT! Ken runs such a tight ship, and he does it with great passion and humor. The 10 Minute Play Contest was a blast! We had so much fun doing the show multiple times, and Ken was incredibly supportive of the writers, actors and directors. He clearly loves presenting new theatrical works. And he keeps his theatre immaculate! He is also great with emails - very responsive and specific. Overall a fantastic experience, and I hope to come back again!”

SPRING NEW WORKS PLAY SERIES
March 15 - May 31, 2017
at Manhattan Repertory Theatre, 17-19 West 45th St.

We have been producing new work here in New York City for over 11 years. (Over 1000 full length plays and close to 2000 short works.) Putting up a successful play production in NYC is quite a challenge and there are a myriad of factors that either make or break a production. 

Our new Premiere Play Series is an attempt streamline the process of play production and solve some of the most challenging problems of producing a play in NYC.

There are so many festivals now in town where plays are slapped into theaters with very limited tech, dress and rehearsal time. Often it is twice the play length, or a daytime Tech/Dress for 4 or 5 hours tops where you are stressed out of your mind attempting to perfect your play in this strange theatre while the clock is ticking.

For Full-Length Plays:

3 performances in Midtown.

10 hours of Theatre time minimum.

Production Consultation and more!

NOT part of a crazy Festival with scores of plays!

 


A play is fiction - and fiction is fact distilled into truth.

Acting is not about being someone different. It's finding the similarity in what is apparently different, then finding myself in there.
