ABOUT ATLANTIC THEATER COMPANY AND SCHOOL

Atlantic Theater Company is the award-winning Off-Broadway theater that produces great plays simply and truthfully utilizing an artistic ensemble. Founded in 1985 by David Mamet and William H. Macy, Atlantic believes that the story of a play and the intent of its playwright are at the core of the creative process. The plays in the Atlantic repertory, from both new and established playwrights, are boldly interpreted by today’s finest theater artists and resonate with contemporary audiences.

Since its inception, Atlantic has produced more than 100 plays, including the Tony Award® winning productions of Spring Awakening and The Beauty Queen of Leenane as well as The Lieutenant of Inishmore by Martin McDonagh, David Mamet’s adaptation of The Voysey Inheritance by Harley Granville Barker, David Mamet’s Romance, Joe Penhall’s Blue/Orange, Dublin Carol by Conor McPherson, Woody Allen’s Writer’s Block, the revival of Hobson’s Choice, the revivals of American Buffalo and Edmond by David Mamet, Dangerous Corner by J.B. Priestley, adapted and directed by David Mamet, The Cider House Rules, adapted by Peter Parnell, Celebration & The Room and The Hothouse, by Harold Pinter, Mojo by Jez Butterworth, the New York premieres of Howard Korder’s Boys’ Life and The Lights at Lincoln Center Theater, Kevin Heelan’s Distant Fires, Quincy Long’s The Joy of Going Somewhere Definite and Shaker Heights, Tom Donaghy’s Minutes From The Blue Route, Edwin Sánchez’ Trafficking in Broken Hearts and Missing Persons by Craig Lucas.

Producing great plays is only half of Atlantic’s mission. The ATLANTIC ACTING SCHOOL, founded in 1983, operates as both a private conservatory and an undergraduate program in conjunction with New York University. The school focuses on the Practical Aesthetics acting technique, which grew out of a series of NYU summer workshops in Vermont with playwright David Mamet and actor William H. Macy.

The ATLANTIC ACTING SCHOOL fosters new generations of theater artists and audiences by creating a student ensemble that allows emerging actors to hone their craft in a safe yet challenging environment. This year the school reached an enrollment of 440 students representing a large cross-section of social, economic and ethnic backgrounds. Distinguished guest lecturers include Sam Shepard, Margo Jefferson, Gore Vidal, Mary Steenburgen, Nicky Silver, Ted Danson and program graduates Kristen Johnston, Camryn Manheim and Eddie Cahill. Atlantic is committed to preparing its students for all aspects of a performing arts career.
