"Under the guidance of Artistic Director Ken Wolf, Manhattan Repertory Theatre's innovative program whereby they fully produce your play is a godsend to every playwright. Take it from someone who has used the service.
One of my manuscripts was languishing in my desk drawer destined never to become a “play” because I found it overwhelming and much too costly to have it produced. And then I came upon the MRT’s program designed to fully produce your play in NY.
Being from out of state there was no convenient mechanism to select a New York director, hold auditions, rent rehearsal space, coordinate rehearsal schedules, hire a technician to control the light and sound requirements nor could I rent a theater for the ultimate production. The MRT production program overcame all that. For a very modest fee, Ken Wolf took my manuscript and brought it to life. I was impressed with his attention to detail and the fact that he engaged and consulted with me throughout the process in a most collegial way. And to think that this it can be done for a play submitted from any where in the world.
Our play ran for 27 minutes and used three pieces of music, four sound effects and several lighting adjustments and I could not have been happier with the outcome. I strongly recommend that any playwright whose work is gathering dust in their “never to be seen” file, to do yourself a favor and experience the joy of seeing your play produced.

"Without exception, Manhattan Repertory is a treasure to the theater world, selfishly devoted to bringing entertaining and thought provoking work for the benefit of a discerning public.
I will never forget the thoughtful and imaginative treatment of my play done professionally.
You have my thanks and support for the excellent work you do...with your productions as their own reward. Without hesitation I would recommend Manhattan Repertory to any writer to have their plays produced.
Thank you forever."

Here is a link to an article on BroadwayWorld.com about our play production program:
"This is my most positive experience as a continuing playwright at Manhattan Repertory Theatre because I just let go of all artistic control. Ken Wolf takes out all of the stress of production: casting, rehearsing, stage design, costuming. I am totally sold on just being a playwright and allowing the producer (Ken) just to take care."
