This Week at Manhattan Rep!


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!

10 Minute Plays, 11-20 Minute Plays, 21-35 minute Plays

Fully produced for you

 2 performances minimum! 

Full-Length Plays up to 120 minutes - Fully produced for you!  

3 to 8 performances!

WE NOW HAVE SLOTS AVAILABLE JUNE THROUGH SEPTEMBER!


“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!”

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!


"The point of theatre is transformation: to make an extraordinary event out of ordinary material right in front of an audience's eyes.  - Lee Hall -


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

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