"Without exception, Manhattan Repertory is a treasure to the theater world, selfishly devoted to bringing entertaining and thought provoking work for the benefit of a discerning public.
I will never forget the thoughtful and imaginative treatment of my play done professionally.
You have my thanks and support for the excellent work you do...with your productions as their own reward. Without hesitation I would recommend Manhattan Repertory to any writer to have their plays produced.
Thank you forever."

“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!”
