Once upon a time theater was created to be 'the seeing place' (translation of the Greek word for theater) - a gathering of a people to talk about socio-political issues of the times, to see themselves reflected in the stories being told. The whole community participated and 'the seeing place' quickly became the mirror holding itself up to humanity, with actors taking their place as vibrant living historians of mankind. 

Now, theater as we know it is in danger of becoming extinct, accessible only to the wealthy and so polished that the dizzying depths and rough edges of humanity are wiped squeaky clean. 

We are The Seeing Place Theater, a 12 year old critically acclaimed ensemble dedicated to bringing theater back to its rightful place in the center of the conversation. And we’re doing it right in the heart of the East Village.

Now, YOU have a chance to be a part of the REVOLUTION.

"In these recession strapped times, it's the best deal on or off Broadway." - Will Kenton, Cultural Capitol

"How often does the opportunity arise to see one of the greatest American playwright's work produced by a company that takes their work as seriously as this one does, and delivers results that prove how effective that work is?" - Toby Ring Thelin, Theatre Knights (& Daze)

"The Seeing Place has proved to be a bold and spirited force in independent theater, producing thoughtful works that are timelessly relevant to our cultural moment...I’ve never seen a company that felt so present and so invested in their work." - Sara Zweig, Letters from the Mezzanine

"I hope that The Seeing Place Theater continues to push the boundaries of theater in the off off Broadway community by producing thought-provoking, smart, and well-acted theatre. Oh, and tickets are only $15. You really can’t beat that.” - Zak Risinger, Theatre is Easy
