The annual PlayLabs reading series take the development of new plays to the public, bringing you exciting new work and giving the playwrights the invaluable opportunity to engage directly with an audience.
PlayLabs feature new work by some of the most exciting writers working today. Each has their own unique voice that is brought to life by New York's best actors. Past readings have featured Michael Shannon (Oscar nominee for Revolutionary Road, Bug), Michael Urie (Ugly Betty), Marin Ireland (reasons to be pretty on Broadway, Blasted), and many more.
With our PlayLabs, MCC Theater brings new plays to you and gives you an important role in the play development process. Join us after every reading for a free post-reading reception including wine and snacks, with a chance to chat with the playwright, the actors, and meet other new play enthusiasts.
