We HAVE moved!

NEW MRT COLLAGE.jpg

 

So this past Autumn we moved to our new space at 17-19 West 45th St and it is beautiful. We are so excited to continue to help develop theatre in the Heart of Times Square, the theatrical center of the universe. We were 11 years on 42nd St.  We hope to be another 20 years here in our gorgeous new space.

Thanks for continuing to PLAY with us.  We promise some great playwriting information and tips, playwriting services and some fun play production opportunities as we continue in our mission to help create awesome theatre!

Manhattan Rep's PLAY PRODUCTION PROGRAM

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 going to make it possible for anyone with a good play, and for a nominal fee, to have their 10 minute, Short Play or Full-Length play produced at Manhattan Rep.  We will supply the director, the cast, the rehearsal space, set and props, and we will 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 won't cost an arm and a leg!


THE PLAYWRITING BLOG

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! 


Playwriting Mentoring

(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!”

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