ABOUT MAGIC THEATRE
Magic Theatre, founded in 1967, is dedicated to the cultivation of innovative plays, playwrights, and audiences – and to explosive and entertaining productions of original, ideologically robust narratives that ask big questions about our place in the world.
At Magic, we strive to provide an artistic home for writers where they can create a body of work. We believe that developing and producing an evolving shared artistic vocabulary over a long period of time improves a playwright’s chance to thrive.
We are committed to sustaining the inventiveness and relevance of the national canon. Of the last 25 plays that Magic has produced, 23 have gone on to have continued life throughout the United States and beyond. Magic works side-by-side with adventuresome playwrights to foster new works from page to stage as world premieres; seize the rare opportunity to further develop a new work within a second or third production; or reimagine a seminal piece from our roster of legacy playwrights.
At Magic, we are fully committed to diversity and inclusion in all areas of our work. We believe that producing world-class theatre depends on our ability to embrace, reflect, and amplify the multitude of ideas, cultures, and voices that make up the world in which we live.
Magic Theatre produces a season of five plays plus a varying number of in-house developmental workshops and public readings (through its Virgin Play series and other events).
