Founded in 1985, Working Theater exists to create theater specifically for, about and with working people, a community that makes up the majority of the overall metropolitan workforce.
We believe theater should not be a luxury. We make our productions relevant, accessible and affordable to all regardless of geography or socio-economic status.
Through ticket subsidies, an active commissioning program, a successful grassroots audience development program and a pioneering arts-in-education program, our audience reflects the full diversity of New York.
