We do theater!!
Since founding of our theater company, we have proudly worked with over 500 wonderful NYC artists.
We look forward to sharing the creative process, design visions, rehearsal room collaborations, and stage productions with more artists in the future.
Established in June of 2009, American Bard Theater Company was born out of the desire for 14 artists to hone their craft and provide themselves with opportunities for performance, design, directorial and administrative growth. With a collective agreement that "The play's the thing," the founding members worked to establish a company that honors the playwright and deems service to the text as the #1 priority in storytelling.
