Bridge Repertory Theater
We are a 501c3 nonprofit performing arts organization with a mission to connect actors to audiences,
artists to artists, and the theatre to our city.
Founded in 2012 by a group of six artists / entrepreneurs, all under the age of 30 (at the time!), we quickly emerged as a new and exciting player in the arts scene of greater Boston. With just $10,000 in start up money, we went on to produce fourteen fully realized mainstage productions in our first four years, curating a wide range of work under the auspices of two core values: 1) hire the very best actors possible, and 2) give audiences unprecedented access to those actors via unique, intimately staged productions, innovative outreach, and tiered ticket pricing.
Now entering our fifth year, we are undertaking a ground breaking residency at the Multicultural Arts Center in East Cambridge, where we will develop an unprecedented world premiere called Dark Room, written by living playwright George Brant, with movement design by Doppelgänger Dance Collective, and featuring an epic cast of 20 – 30 women.
Our goals include: extending the one-year residency into a longer-term relationship with the Multicultural Arts Center, where we’ll pursue two large-cast productions each year, as well as two one-off performance events; increasing our operating budget from $100,000 / year to $500,000 / year (or more) by our tenth year; establishing a core company of resident Playmakers who live and work in Cambridge; innovating audience access and engagement; developing educational programming.
