From the theater: "We are forcefully committed to four elements of theatre-making: developing actors into thriving self-producers; honoring the craft of the actor's process through rehearsal and into performance; bringing organic, 'fully lived' storytelling to our community; and making theater accessible for all New Yorkers by keeping ticket prices low and affordable."

The Seeing Place's 6th Season began with its pulsing, modern production of OTHELLO (William Shakespeare,) and continued this summer with BOYS' LIFE (Howard Korder) running in repertory with BOY GETS GIRL (Rebecca Gilman.) THE PILLOWMAN and GIDION'S KNOT conclude this critically acclaimed season.
