Vassar & New York Stage and Film's Powerhouse collaboration continues to be the launching pad for some of the most groundbreaking new works for the American theater, with countless productions in New York City, regionally and internationally. Notably, Lin-Manuel Miranda's Hamilton and Stephen Karam's The Humans-the 2016 Tony® winners for Best Musical and Best Play, respectively-received early development at Powerhouse, and Powerhouse presented first-look productions of two daring new works that were named finalists for the 2017 Pulitzer Prize for Drama: Sarah DeLappe's The Wolves, which moved directly from its Powerhouse premiere to recent celebrated runs at The Playwrights Realm and Lincoln Center Theater in NYC; and Taylor Mac's A 24-Decade History of Popular Music, which is currently on an international tour. Among 30 other projects developed recently at Powerhouse with new or upcoming major productions: Amy and the Orphans off-Broadway at the Roundabout Theatre Company; Head Over Heels, the new Go-Go's musical at San Francisco's Curran and Broadway; Lucy Thurber's play Transfers at MCC Theater; the Stephen Trask, Peter Yanowitz, Rick Elice musical This Ain't No Disco, Ngozi Anyanwu's The Homecoming Queen, and Lauren Yee's The Great Leap at Atlantic Theater Company; and the David Bryan, Joe DiPietro musical Diana at La Jolla Playhouse.
