In summer 2012, New Line Theatre, "the Bad Boy of Musical Theatre," created a new side identity called New Line Theatre Off Line, to be a framework for the New Line actors to explore other music and Theatre Projects, including New Line's own unique brand of adult cabaret, musical improv, and other kinds of performance opportunities, as well as master classes, workshops, and more, all headed up by New Line actor and Associate Artistic Director Mike Dowdy.
New Line Theatre is a professional company dedicated to involving the people of the St. Louis region in the exploration and creation of daring, provocative, socially and politically relevant works of musical theatre. New Line Theatre was created in 1991 at the vanguard of a new wave of nonprofit musical theatre just starting to take hold across the country. The company has given birth to several world premiere musicals over the years and has brought back to life many shows that did not do well in their original New York productions. Altogether, New Line has produced 68 musicals and 5 concerts of theatre songs since 1991. New Line Theatre was recently given its own entry in the latest edition of the prestigious Cambridge Guide to American Theatre.
New Line continues its current mainstage season with the Pulitzer Prize winning rock musical RENT, March 6-29, and the new rock-country musical HANDS ON A HARDBODY, May 29-June 21. New Line receives funding from the Regional Arts Commission, the Fox Performing Arts Charitable Foundation, and the Missouri Arts Council.
