MCC Theater built a home of our own to enrich and expand our programming with more productions of new plays and musicals across two stages, increased play development for emerging and established playwrights, and expanded public engagement and education programs for New York City youth. 

Our new home, The Robert W. Wilson MCC Theater Space, begins performances in January 2019 and allows us to deepen our mission and encourage greater collaboration among all of our artists, students, and audiences.

 “With all that MCC Theater has contributed to New York’s—even the world’s—theatrical community, imagine what we could do, the impact we will have, with a home of our own. A single place to connect all the dots of MCC’s great work.”

– Peter Hedges, Founding Member, Playwright,
Academy Award-nominated Screenwriter, MCC Theater Board Member

For the first time under one roof:

We Produce Exciting Theater

We produce seasons of BOLD new plays and musicals by exceptional PLAYWRIGHTS daring to explore. The FEARLESSNESS we encourage in ARTISTS broadens our productions and engages AUDIENCE reflection upon and discussion of the most essential, but often overlooked, questions of our time.


We Develop New Work

We develop NEW WORK by emerging and established artists through a rigorous process that encourages BOLD, CREATIVE RISKS. Our PLAYLABS weave you into our development of new work with the opportunity to attend LIVE READINGS and to participate in OPEN CONVERSATIONS with CREATORS about their work still under development. 


We Honor Young Voices

Each year our education programs use the power of theater to rouse the imaginations and excite the minds of over 1200 high school students across ALL FIVE BOROUGHS. Our CLASSROOM PARTNERSHIPS match teaching artists with local schools to develop complimentary arts education programs that UNLOCK  CREATIVITY and EMBOLDEN students with new-found confidence in the curriculum.


We Get People Talking

COLLABORATION and COMMUNITY are at the core of everything we do, which is why we invite you, our audience, to join us in conversations at every stage of our work. PLAYLABS, Post-show TALKBACKS, AUDIENCE CONVERSATIONS, and free PANEL DISCUSSIONS give you the chance to discuss with guest experts, cast members, and creative teams the work you experience on our stages.
