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 46 Walker Street. We have commissioned artists including Alice Birch, Jorge Ignacio Cortiñas, Jackie Sibblies Drury, Jason Grote, Narcissister, Kate Tarker and Jillian Walker to create new work.
Across January, February, and May 2019, Soho Rep. will workshop and present new works-in-progress from Becca Blackwell & Charlotte Brathwaite, Branden Jacobs-Jenkins & Carmelita Tropicana, and Narcissister.
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.
