This Week at Manhattan Rep!


“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!” 

- Pamela Weiler Grayson - Playwright/Producer -

HOW DOES THAT MAKE YOU FEEL?  

WINNER -  10 MINUTE PLAY CONTEST July 2016


A Better Way to Move Your Play to

The Next Level!

October 4 through December 20, 2017

What if you had a month after you opened your show to get the important people down to see your play?  Once your show is up and running, ONCE A WEEK for 5 performances, you have a month to promote, to connect, to make phone calls, to gently persuade, harass and cojole producers, reviewers and Theatre Angels to come and see your show? And it is affordable! Wouldn't that be a much better way to self-produce your play? A little more bang for your producing buck?

Submit your 7 - 25 minute Play Production!

Manhattan Rep's Playwright Showcase is created to showcase your new work in the heart of the theatrical capital of the world - Times Square!  And we make it easy.

We supply the technician for lights and sound.  We supply the poster and the ticketing pages.

We curate, organize and orchestrate the program with 3 or 4 other amazing short plays... 

And we supply our beautiful new theatre space on West 45th St. right in the middle of the of Broadway and more! 

Please come join us as we celebrate Playwrights and the magical power of the theatre!!
