Prospect Theater Company is dedicated to a bright future for the American musical, and develops and produces original music theater works created collaboratively by emerging artists, as well as radical re-interpretations of existing musicals. The company hopes to:
--Open a dialogue between classic and new work for the stage, in order to allow a knowledge of theater’s past to influence and inform its future;
--Create and sustain a process-oriented work environment in which
artists are free to take risks;
--Promote a supportive community among Prospect’s ensemble of artists; and
--Build an audience base which is actively engaged in a dialogue
with providing feedback on new work.
While our productions are eclectic in genre and style, usually our work uses heightened language, ensemble-based performance, a strong grounding in historical context, and an integration of text, movement, music, and design to fully create a theatrical world.
