Studio plays explore the contemporary world with style, wit, and passion. Our work falls into two programming streams:

main series

Studio’s Subscription Season is the core of our programming, offering an uncommonly rich repertoire of provocative contemporary writing from around the world and inventive stagings of contemporary classics. 

Studio x

The work of Studio X is purposefully eclectic, encompassing plays that will benefit from particularly intimate or immersive stagings, presented work, and some of Studio's world premiere projects.

New work at Studio

Studio’s intimate spaces are uniquely suited to the immediacy of new work—they’re small, and they provide a direct relationship between the actor and audience. Building on its 35-year history of producing powerful contemporary, Artistic Director David Muse came to Studio in 2010 with a vision for expanding substantially its new work production.


Audience Engagement

Studio produces plays that start conversations. We offer a variety of ways for audiences to engage with the plays, process, and people behind the work on our stages.
