About the Company: Manhattan Theatre Works

Started producing thought-provoking new plays in the Fall of 2006 with Folie A Deux: Insanity in Pairs written by founder and Artistic Director David Stallings, directed by founder and former Executive Director Cristina Alicea, produced by founder Antonio Minino. What started as a trio of like-minded artists has grown into a family of over 50 talented MTWorkers dedicated to developing new ground-breaking diverse plays from around the world. MTWorks is dedicated to discovering new plays that challenge our perception of diversity (ethnic, economic, geographic, gender, sexuality or creed). We foster today’s innovative playwrights who boldly take risks in theme, structure, time-period and location by collaborating with exceptional theatre artists to develop their plays through our Living Room Series, Newborn Festival and mainstage productions. www.mtworks.org
