Playwrights Horizons, New York City

4.3
In a city rich with cultural offerings, Playwrights Horizons' 45-year-old mission is unique; we are the only major theater in New York with this specific mission. We have distinguished ourselves by the caliber of our work and our steadfast commitment to the voice of the American writer. It is a mission that is always timely, and it is essential to the future of the American theater.

Under the leadership of Artistic Director Tim Sanford and Managing Director Leslie Marcus, Playwrights Horizons encourages the new work of veteran writers while nurturing an emerging generation of theater artists. We are among the few theaters in the US that maintain an open submission policy, and writers are supported through every stage of their growth with a series of development programs that comprise our New Works Lab. We present at least six productions annually on our two stages, each of which is a World, American or New York premiere.
