The STUDIO is distinctive within the theater community in that it fully supports the development of new work, from first impulse through full production, over the course of several years. In the past four seasons, 88% of the company’s productions have been commissioned or developed in the Studio, including Fairview, Is God Is, Futurity, 10 Out of 12, An Octoroon and more.
From 2018 – 2022 the program will support the development of at least eight new pieces that we plan on producing at Soho Rep. Artists currently developing work through the Studio program include Becca Blackwell; Alice Birch; Jorge Ignacio Cortiñas; Jackie Sibblies Drury; Branden Jacobs-Jenkins & Carmelita Tropicana; Narcissister; Radical Evolution; Kate Tarker; and Jillian Walker.
Stay tuned here, or sign up for our email list at the bottom of the page, for more information about further public presentations of work in development.
Leadership support for the STUDIO is provided by the Vilcek Foundation. Alice Birch and Jackie Sibblies Drury are recipients of Berwin Lee New Play Commissions. Other commissions are being supported by James Gleick & Cynthia Crossen, Jody Falco & Jeffrey Steinman, and the Toulmin Foundation.
