A little about the Drama League
The Drama League is dedicated to creating transformative interactions between artists and audiences…above and beyond the performances they experience. We harness this fruitful, essential engagement of the theater maker and the theater advocate to enhance the professional, personal and creative development of artists; to improve the quality of new work for the stage; and to imbue audiences with a richer, more informed experience. By working together in a shared passion, we make the theater stronger for generations to come.
