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!

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

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!”
