New Circle Theatre Company is a company of actors, writers and directors, many of whom have worked together for decades with a dedication to develop and foster new American plays.

New Circle Theatre Company (NCTC) traces its lineage back to the Circle Repertory Company and the Circle Rep Lab. When Circle Rep closed its doors in 1996, Michael Warren Powell, the Lab's long-time Artistic Director, started a new company with the aim of continuing the work of Circle. Michael, along with many of the Circle family, founded the Lab Theater Company which eventually became Circle East. Michael continued his inspirational leadership of the company until his death in July 2016.

New Circle Theatre Company was established to carry on this legacy.

This legacy began in the early 1960's at the Caffe Cino and the formation of the Off-Off-Broadway movement. It was at the Cino where Michael Warren Powell, his friend, a young playwright named Lanford Wilson and director Marshall W. Mason got their start in New York theatre.

In 1969, Marshall, Lanford, actor Tayna Berezin, and actor/director Rob Thirkield founded the Circle Repertory Company, which the New York Times called "the chief creator of new American plays." For years the Circle Repertory Company continued producing new and innovative work, launching the careers of many of the most consequential theatre artists of the last three decades of the 20th Century.

New Circle Theatre Company's mission remains dedicated to this legacy and to the development of new plays by continuing the tradition handed down to us by these pioneering and influential artists.
