Celebrating its 30th year, Vineyard Theatre is one of America’s preeminent non-profit theatre companies. Dedicated to the creation and production of daring new plays and musicals, our premieres include Nicky Silver’s THE LYONS, the Tony Award-winning AVENUE Q, Kander and Ebb’s THE SCOTTSBORO BOYS, Tarell Alvin McCraney’s WIG OUT!, Becky Mode’s FULLY COMMITTED, Gina Gionfriddo’s AFTER ASHLEY, Will Eno’s MIDDLETOWN, and two Pulitzer Prize-winning dramas, Paula Vogel’s HOW I LEARNED TO DRIVE and Edward Albee’s THREE TALL WOMEN. Our community includes some of the most exciting theatre artists working today — some at the beginning of their careers, many returning to work with us again, and all engaged in creating compelling new work to share with you. Come be a part of New York’s home for bold theatre!
