We believe theatre engages best with audiences when it is created by artists experienced in working together. We are dedicated to producing a repertory, strongly rooted in the classics, which reflects, enlightens, and informs our contemporary life.
As our good friend William once said,
“What’s past is prologue…”
Two years ago, the Pearl Theatre Company closed its doors after 33 years of bringing New Yorkers the very best of the classical theater canon. But the spirit and mission of the Pearl lives on in the Resident Acting Company, and we are just getting started.
Our company’s mission is to continue and expand upon the great work we began at The Pearl. In 2018 we produced seven staged readings at The Players, and we have announced four more for Spring – Summer of 2019. This reading series has been wildly successful, allowing us to reconnect with these classic works in a contemporary context, to deepen our connection as a company, and most importantly, to reconnect with you, our beloved audience. But this is only the beginning.
We have big plans for the future, and we need your financial support to reach the next level.
We need your help.
Shakespeare, Chekhov, Ibsen, Shaw, Ionesco, Sophocles, Aeschylus, Coward, Behn, Dickens, Powell…
Together we created so much wonderful theatre, together we have breathed life into so many beautiful classic works, and together we can do so much more. We are the Resident Acting Company.
