The Gallery Players
THE MISSION OF THE GALLERY PLAYERS
The Gallery Players, located in Brooklyn since 1967, is dedicated to producing classic and contemporary plays and musicals as well as premiering new works. The purpose of the Gallery Players is to nurture and provide opportunities for theater artists, to bring professional-quality theater to Brooklyn audiences at an affordable cost, and to instill the appreciation of theater in future generations.
Gallery resides in a 99-seat theater in Park Slope, Brooklyn. Each season Gallery presents six main stage productions – three plays, three musicals, and the Black Box New Play Festival, in addition to the summer Players' Shakespeare and the new initiative, OVERTURES: A New Musical Reading Series.
Its reputation, critical acclaim, and popularity among audiences and artists puts it in an enviable position among its volunteer-only and Off-Off Broadway comparables. The eclectic programming of intimate revivals and ambitious new work in inventive productions has earned Gallery the reputation of "New York's Best Kept Secret." Among its famous alumni are founding member Harvey Fierstein; Broadway regulars Nancy Anderson, Jeffry Denman, and Diedre Goodwin; New York theater personality Seth Rudetsky; and many others.
