Manhattan Repertory Theatre prides itself on being a welcoming and nurturing space for independent artists, playwrights and actors alike. I was more than pleased with their professionalism, their experience, their graciousness, and their warmth during my time there.
I hope to continue our relationship in the future.

“Every once in a while, something that seems too good to be true actually IS true. Working with the Manhattan Repertory Theatre was effortless and uncomplicated. Their constant support from the moment our play was chosen was amazing - we always felt like we were their highest priority- which is incredible given the large amount of artists they're constantly working with. In addition to the great team of people at MRT, we were given a lovely, intimate, functional space in the heart of the theater district to showcase our work. Manhattan Repertory Theatre is a diamond in the rough - a group of professional artists truly supporting other artists. Being a part of their play festival has been a dream and a blessing.”
Michael DiFrancisco, Producer/Director -
"Manhattan Rep runs the most well-organized competition I have ever experienced in New York. They are fair to the playwrights who join them, and celebrate good theater with great enthusiasm. The caliber of work that Manhattan Rep attracts is very high. I would encourage all good playwrights to give this competition a try."

I highly recommend Manhattan Rep to any artist or company looking to develop their craft in their wonderfully clean, welcoming and intimate space. The process of working at Manhattan Rep is seemless and rewarding. The staff is always available for guidance and support and you will leave knowing that your team and your work were treated with the uptmost respect and care.
John Rotondo - Playwright/Producer
"My experience at Manhattan Repertory Theatre has been extraordinary. Because of Ken Wolf’s unwavering support, I was able to transform my solo show into a richly layered, multi-character ensemble piece. Ken fearlessly encourages each playwright to fully engage in their work – from producing to writing to directing to performing, but he is also there every step of the way, tirelessly responding to each question, giving vital advice. Although this was an incredibly challenging undertaking, I’d remind myself of Ken’s words to me: “think of each hardship as a gift.” His open-minded approach taught me to value each challenge as an integral part of the artistic process, as part and parcel of the organic evolution of what it means to truly develop a play. I am deeply grateful to both Ken Wolf and Jennifer Pierro for their unique vision and devotion to emerging playwrights."

THE TRUE STORY OF WHEN
CAME TO MANHATTAN REP!
Nearly Naked with Meryl Streep
By Jordyn Taylor 5/08/2013
From the New York Observer
I can’t quite explain how it happened, but last night I found myself performing in my underwear for Meryl Streep.
Well, I can explain part of it—the part thatwasn’t the direct result of the Gods of Off-Off-Broadway Theater.
My good friend Hanah Fazio wrote a play called “The Miss Woman Pageant 2013,” which was accepted into the Manhattan Repertory Theatre’s Spring One-Act Competition.
